Alumnus speaks at opening convocation 

Ware urges students to take advantage of years in college 


Staff Writer 

Gathering to acknowledge the 
achievements of students and faculty and to 
welcome the start of the new academic 
year, administrators, faculty and students 
fdled Samuelson Chapel to its capacity at 
last Tuesday's opening convocation. 

This year's address was given by Judge 
W. James Ware, a 1969 graduate of CLU. 
whose speech at convocation kicked off a 
lecture series focused on the topic of 

Ware began his address by explaining the 
outlining of Lhe university . from ihe Regents, 
who he said "believe that they can give 
policy even to God," to the freshmen who 
are at the bottom of the totem pole. 

Ware placed seniors at the top of the 
power structure. "They are gods," he said, 
meeting laughter and applause from the 

The speaker urged students not to pass up 
thechances they have todevelop leadership. 
The opportunities for this development are 
abundant at CLU he said. 

"It was here that I learned the power that 
comes from having the opportunity to do 
mighty things," Ware said. 

He added that he was able to become 
more of a leader at CLU by becoming 
involved with various activities on campus, 
including drama productions and student 

Ware's desire to become a leader and his 
yearning for justice arose in part from 
experiences he had long before he came to 
this institution. 

He told a story of being a young black boy 
when his little brother, who was riding on 
the handlebars of his bicycle, was ruthlessly 
shot by two white boys on a red motor 
scooter covered with representations of the 
Confederate flag. 

This experience left "a scar on my soul, 

but I also came out with 
a heart yearning for 
justice," Ware said. 

During his time at 
CLU, he said he was able 
to turn his anger from 
that event into something 

He said he does not 
subscribe to the belief 
that life in college does 
not offer the kind of 
experience found outside 
that environment. 

"I reject the idea that 
there is a 'real world' 
outside of Campus 
Drive," Ware said. "It's 
real because the conflicts 
are here." 

Life at CLU brings 
students into contact 
with diverse people and 
situations, leading to 
opportunities for 
conflict, but also for 
learning, Ware said. 

"It's your 

responsibility to learn 
about the people who are 
here," he said, adding, 
"Reach out, touch the 
people who are next to 
you that are different 
than you. Find out what 
makes them tick."

Accrediting process draws to a close 

Reaffirmation expected during first week of November 


Staff Writer 

Though accreditation is an ongoing 
process with statistics reported annually 
and reports issued at midpoint, a thorough 
self-examination is required of all 
universities toward the end of the 
accreditation time period. 

'They look at virtually everything and 
that is what makes it such an awesome 
process," said Ken Pflueger, director of 

information services. 

The self-study process began in the spring 
of 1993 with the appointment of a steering 
committee to set goals and guide task forces 
composed of faculty, staff and students. 

Among accreditation standards are 
institutional integrity, governance and 
administration and physical and financial 

'The real heart of standards are quality of 
educational programs and how we represent 

ourselves," Pflueger said. 

"Their primary purpose is to test out 
things the university says about itself in the 
self-study,'' he added, 'They key off our 
goals. If we say one-on-one relationships 
with students is important, they look at 
student-faculty proportions." 

A concerted effort was made as part of 
the self-study portion of the CLU strategic 
planning process.

Event sponsored by Community Service Center

The Volunteer Opportunities 
Expo, sponsored by the Community 
Service Center, was held last on the 
lawns adjacent to Alumni Hall. 

Many influential volunteer 
programs were present to offer 
students an opportunity to become 
involved in the community. 

A diverse group of organizations 
were present to assist students in 
discovering a volunteer program best 
suited to their interests and 
educational goals. 

The March of Dimes, American 
Cancer Society, and the Red Cross 
are in need of volunteers for different 
aspects of the organization. Diane 
Rydberg, from the March of Dimes, 
expressed the need forpeople willing 
to donate any "specific skills" which 
may be useful in the upcoming Walk 

A rewarding volunteer experience 
is available through one of the many- 
youth targeted organizations. The Big 
Brothers/Big Sisters program is searching 
for men and women willing to become 
mentors to children who are considered to 
be "at risk."

Judicial Board to 
answer questions 


Staff Writer 

The ASCLU Senate has begun 
meetings for the 1995-96 school year 
with several problems to solve. 

The first of these issues involves the 
recall elections last year of Commuter 
Senator Adam Abrahms and Senior 
Senator Nate Olsen. 

The two were recalled in an election 
last May but have questioned the 
constitutionality of the elections. 

The second issue involves various 
bills and resolutions brought up by the 
Senate last May. There is some question 
as to whether or not the bills passed. 

"The main questions are did the bills 
pass and did the resolutions pass,"said 
ASCLU president Mark Schoenbeck. 

The ASCLU Executive Cabinet has 
decided to send these questions to the 
Judicial Board to be answered. 

"It's not going to be a fast process," 
Schoenbeck said. 

In other business, the Senate approved 
Annie Baumgartner as ASCLU 
secretary. She is expected to take office 
after being confirmed later this week. 

The Senate retreat will be be held this 
weekend in El Camino Pines. 

"We talk about goals as a group 
together," Schoenbeck said. 

The retreat is also used to discuss 
procedures and getting to know each 
other better as a group. 

Self-Study aids strategic 
planning of university 

Continued from Front Page 

"We found useful information that is 
being used in the planning process of the 
university," Pflueger said. 

After being submitted to WASC (the 
Western Association of Schools and 
Colleges) in the fall of 1994, the self-study 
was returned with comments and 
suggestions for revision. 

The next step was to assemble a fact- 
finding team from colleges and universities 
throughout California who report directly 
to the accrediting commission. 

It was particularly challenging to 
undertake the self-study when there was 
such substantial and pervasive change at 
CLU. The process literally began and ended 
under two different administrations. 

The university was restructuring the 
administration at several levels, developing, 
a strategic plan, developing and 
implementing an assessment plan and 
undertaking substantive initiatives, such as 

CLUnet and the new KCLU-FM radio 

"Preparing for the self-study was a very 
challenging, time consuming process. But 
the results have been worth it. We received 
a very positive constructive assessment from 
the WASC visiting team, and we identified 
a number of issues we need to address in our 
strategic planning process," said Dr. Pam 
Jolicoeur, vice president of academic affairs. 

"It was a lot of work and everybody is 
very relieved it is over," she added. 

The self-study process and accreditation 
met its goals of involving as large a group as 
possible and conducting the study in a 
manner that would enable it to be integrated 
into the university's strategic planning 

The report of the visiting team, which 
was on campus during finals last semester, 
went to the WASC accrediting commission, 
where the final decision regarding 
reaffirmation will be made in the first week 
of November. 


It's a bird, it's a plane, it's 
a shiny new jeep 

Have you ever wondered who, around 
this delightful institution of higher learning, 
makes the final decision about where all of 
the extra cash laying around goes? 

While traversing around this campus, 
you may possibly have noticed the presence 
of a new automobile: a sleek, shiny, new, 
white Jeep Cherokee. 

This ostentatious new vehicle, a package 
deal with bars resembling ski racks resting 
comfortably on the roof, can usually be 
spotted during late night hours searching 
the campus for suspicious behavior. It 
glides over speed bumps, turns gravel into 
dust, can hurdle curbs and other obstacles 

Ladies and gentlemen, this new vehicle 
is the one and only new toy bought for your 
viewing pleasure for your dedicated 
security staff: one that cares first and 
foremost about you. The reason being, of 
course, that without you they would not be 
what they are today. 

The security truck, otherwise known on 
weekends and holidays as the Snow 
Summit Express. Monday through Friday 
it's the automobile that makes sure CLU's 
security can do the most efficient job of 
taking care of you. Its driver is alert to 
gangers that lurk around this campus, full 
6f relentless concern for it's beloved 
benefactors and proud members of the 
CLU community. 

But, beware. This vehicle is not all it 
seems to be. Can it really reach the dark 
corners of campus where the trouble arises? 
Can it get to those hidden places off the 
beaten path where most of the problems 
lurk? If the answer to these two questions 
is no, we beseech you to ask, "Is this new 
vehicle really necessary?" 

Perhaps our university should consider 
investing in a bicycle for the officer on 
duty and a brand new pair of hiking boots 
for our truly devoted security officers.

university costs 
leaves student 
in a quandry 

I am a college student 
desperately struggling to finance 
my way through school. The 
tuition increase each year on 
both public and private schools 
is averaging about nine percent 
That means by the year 2010 
tuition will be nearly $220,000. 
That is outrageous, the nine 
percent increases are well above 
the annual inflation. Itis difficult 
enough to study and engage in 
extracurricular activities 
without having to work for 
tuition money. 

The next thing you know our 
parents will be having to save 
allof their money for tuition instead of socking itaway for 
their retirement. I have been able to avoid some of the 
horrendous tuition costs by attending summer school at 
Moorpark College and paying $13.50 per unit instead of 
$500 per unit. After this year of college I will have too 
many credits to attend a community college and I will 
have to face the high cost of getting an education. The 
enrollment rate is dropping because many people are 
reluctant to put themselves in severe debt to attend

CSC excited about 
upcoming year 

Congratulations to you and your staff on an excellent 
first issue (Sept. 6). I like the look and feel of the new 
Echo and wish you well in your endeavors to both 
entertain and educate us. 

I have enjoyed reading the newspaper since my arrival 
in February as director of the Community S ervice Center 
(CSC). I have relied on The Echo to publicize the 
activities and projects of the CSC. I have also read each 
issue to better understand the personality and spirit of 
CLU and its student body. 

The 1995-96 year holds great promise: a new student 
government system, a new gathering place for students 
(the Pavilion), new faces, high athletic goals, a calendar 
crowded with cultural events and lectures. 

Also on the horizon is the exploration of service 
learning atCLU, a movement that unites the university *s 
mission statement with the academic interests of faculty 
and the volunteerism displayed by students. Hopefully, 
The Echo will be a conduit of information on the subject. 

Thanks for giving me this chance to welcome the 
students and invite everyone to drop in at the CSC 
located in the Centrum behind the Career Planning and 
Placement Office. The CSC office is big on goals and 
attitudes for success, much as your Echo staff is.

Ray committed to serving as ICC representative 

Aims for a variety of clubs on campus to increase student interest 

Sports Editor 

One member of the newly structured 
student government who is already having 
a big impact on campus is Inter-Club Council 
(ICC) Representative CJ. Ray. 

Ray, a senior majoring in English, is 
looking forward to a campus scene that 
prominendy features clubs. 

"Clubs are a great way to increase 
activities on campus," Ray said, noting that 
there are several clubs at CLU covering 
almost all interests. 

They range from Habitat for Humanity to 
Rugby to College Republicans, he said. 

This year there are several new clubs in 
the works, including Outdoor Adventurers, 
surfing, rock climbing, Striders, Best 
Buddies, wrestling, sailing, and hiking. 

Ray himself is helping to put together a 
sailing club with senior Shinji Hashimoto 
and a hiking club with junior Dm Murawa. 

They plan to spend a couple weekends a 
semester sailing around San Diego. 

Furthermore, Ray challenges anyone on 
campus who has an idea for a club to come 
to him and see what it takes to get the club 

"There are more students at CLU that 
want to start a club, but just don't know 
where to start," Ray said. 

"Last semester when I ran for the ICC 
position I had a few ideas that I thought 
students would be interested in," Ray said, 
adding that a wide variety of clubs was what 
he aimed for. 

"Now we already have about eight new 
clubs in the works and will probably have at 
least five more by the time the year is over," 
Ray said. 

Ray had quite a bit of experience with 
clubs when he became ICC Representative, 
having put together the Road Rash Cycling 
Club last year. 

As an avid cyclist, Ray rode with students 
on campus and saw the need for the club. 

"Ever since I came to CLU I have gone 
riding with other students and found that 
they wanted a club as well," Ray said, 
looking forward to a big year. 

Events planned for the upcoming year 
include the Rosarita Ensenada Bicycle Fun 
Ride on September 30, the second part of 
the 1995 Ml. Baldy Cup on October 7, the 
1996 L.A. Marathon Bike Tour at the start 
of March, and the 2nd Annual Road Rash 
Cycling Club Beach Barbecue Ride in April. 

The Road Rash club got involved with 
the Ml. Baldy Cup Races through Blue Sky 
Events, Inc., a company that Ray works 
with as a promoter. 

Other events that Ray has worked on with 
Blue Sky Events include national tandem 
rallies and a concert event planned for next 
spring called Roc kin ' L.A. 

This past summer, Ray spent two weeks 
in Durango, Colorado putting on tandem 
rallies and activities such as rafting, riding 
and a trip to Purgatory Ski Resort 

"My work with Blue Sky has really been 
a great experience for me," Ray said, 
"because it has given me great experiences 
and it will be something that I will continue 

C.J. Ray 

to do after I graduate from college." 

With his major in English, Ray is presently 
deciding between two choices for careers. 

"I've narrowed my choices down quite a 
bit," Ray said, "and I will either go into 
teaching or I may go to law school after 

The first big event at CLU Ray pulled off 
as ICC Representative was the club fair on 
Sept. 8. 

"It was a great showcase for the clubs and 
the picnic lunch gave the clubs a chance to 
recruit new members and give students a

taste of what's to come this year," Ray said. 

Other plans for events in the upcoming 
school year include another club fair in the 
second semester, an ICC sponsored barbecue 
each semester, and a concert during spring 
semester that the ICC will co-sponsor with 
the senior class. 

Anyone interested in starting a club or 
offering ideas can call Ray at the ICC office 
at ext. 3461 or at home at ext. 3492.

Usenet News 


Director of Info. Services 

From CLUnet you can access various 
types of news such as Usenet News. This 
consists of a large collection of messages 
similar to e-mail messages organized by 
subjects. Various sources report the actual 
number of news groups between 4,500 and 

The eight major categories of news 
include: alternative (alt), computer (comp), 
miscellaneous (misc), news, recreation (rec), 
science (sci), social (soc), and talk. 

You will find some very useful and 
informative groups and others you will not 
even want to consider exploring. 

Usenet News was developed in 1979 and 
is a separate network on the Internet. Using 
its own communication software, Usenet 
News gets distributed to computers set up to 
receive news in which individuals then read 
and respond. A computer receiving the 
Usenet News can average in excess of 60 
MEG of messages per week! 

CLU does not store the Usenet News 
locally, instead we opt to read the news 
from - our Internet provider. You 
have two options for reading the news - 
from yourrobles account or from the comfort 
of your MAC or Windows desktop using 

The news reading software (rtin) which is 

available on robles allows you to subscribe 
to the news groups that interest you. It also 
keeps track of items that you have read, and 
you can search for groups or items within a 
group by subject. If you have the very latest 
version of Netscape (1.1), you will find 
reading news from Windows or a MAC a 
total delight! 

With so much news available in Usenet 
News and so little time to read it, you might 
want to find a few groups on subjects useful 
to your studies and personal interests. When 
you need information on something, you 
can go to that group, and search for answers 
or ideas. 

For example, when I wanted to know 
more about authoring a home page on the 
World Wide Web, I searched out a group 
that is interested in that subject. Then I 
searched on two topics: "good" books on 
the subject and how to make backgrounds 
to find the information I needed. 

To set up Netscape as your Usenet 
newsreader, from the Options item on the 
menu bar, go into Preferences and then go 
to Mail and News to edit the following

Chapel service 
focuses on 
getting past 
anxiety, living 

in the present 


Staff Writer 

People are 
surrounded by 
anxiety, but it 
need not rule 
their lives. Dr. 
Pam Jolicueur 

said at last Wednesday's morning 
chapel service. 

"Anxiety surrounds what we have 
to accomplish and what we might 
not be able to accomplish," said the 
vice president for academic affairs. 

Jolicoeur said that people must 
first set their priorities straight in 
order to not feel anxiety about 
finding time to do things. 

She suggested that people not 
feel anxious about tomorrow 
because this will only cause them to 
miss out on the present. 

Jolicoeur also mentioned that 
what we do is not to the measure of 
the world. "Very little of what we 
do accomplish will have any matter 
at the end," she said. 

She referred to a message given 
by Matthew 6: 25-34, and suggests 
not worrying because it does not 
help to worry. 

"Jesus is not suggesting to do 
nothing, bui to only fulfill our basic 
human needs," Jolicoeur said. 

Seniors work with local youth 

Two students find jobs at nearby church 


Staff Writer 

While many seniors this year are busy 
preparing for graduation, two seniors in 
particular are dividing their time between 

school and church. 

Michael Morris and Bill Dohle believe 
there is much more to their Cal Lu experience 
than just books and e-mail. 

Since the beginning of this academic 
year, both seniors have begun working part 
time with high school kids at Holy Trinity 
Lutheran Church, located on Mount Clef 
Boulevard and Avenida de Los Arboles. 

Morris, who has a double major in religion 
and liberal arts with an emphasis in music, 
is the senior high youth director at the 

"My job, basically, is to be a shepherd to 
the senior high students," he said. 

"(The idea is to) have a place where these 
students can come and feel welcomed and 
be nurtured as far as their spiritual growth is 
concerned," Morris added. 

The majority of these students come from 
the Thousand Oaks, Moorpark and Simi 
Valley areas. 

"We meet once a week and get together to 
build community," Morris said. 

Dohle, a philosophy major at Cal 
Lutheran, leads the junior high group at 
Holy Trinity. 

"The students I'm working with are from 
the church, and they are students in a 
confirmation class, a class that prepares 
them for church membership," he said. 

"It'samazing .... these kids bring so much 

reality into your life," Dohle said. 
Morris and Dohle were hired to lead the two 

This will allow a greater degree of 
specialization and increased individual 
attention given to each group. 

There used to be two youth directors who 

were in charge of both classes, which identity and a sense of belonging, 

together form a collective group. Then the "The confirmation class meets every 

church decided to split the classes "so they Sunday and I'm a part of that," he said, 

can draw more from the college pool (of "Besides that, we'll be meeting a minimum 

help)," Dohle said. 

Even though 
CLU has no direct 
ties with Holy 
Trinity in this 
respect, the church 
has had several 
interns from the 
school in the past. 

Morris said that 
prior to this job, he 
had done a pastoral 
internship at Holy 

Dohle conceded 
that experiences 
like these are 
invaluable and are 
"almost required" 
when seeking 
application as a 
youth director. 

Morris agreed, 
adding that, "You 
also need to have

As part of this 
program, Dohle has 
set aside one night 
per month as a 
"drop-in night," 
where kids who are 
bored on Friday or 
Saturday nights can 
drop in and hang out 

Even though 
the junior and senior 
high groups are kept 
separate on several 
levels, Dohle and 
Morris plan to work

New ARC and campus ministry assistant makes effort 
to link residence life with religious life at CLU 


Staff Writer 

Many new faces have arrived on campus 
this year, one of which is Sara Brown, 
someone whom students may already be 
familiar with if they are one of the many 
who now call Mount Clef home. 

A recent graduate of Pacific Lutheran 
University in Tacoma, Wash., she is now 
the area resident coordinator of Mount Clef 
as well as the campus ministry assistant. 

These were two separate positions that 
were combined this year to establish a link 
between students and campus ministry. 

The formation of this position allows 
students to be familiar with what is 
happening in the residence halls and in 
campus ministry. 

Brown ensures that daily life in Mount 

Clef is running smoothly, and is able to projects for campus ministry such as Bible 
introduce campus ministry to students as studies and retreats. 


Brown said 
she "loves the 
job because 
it's a 

opportunity to 
work with 
great people 
and to grow

not occupied 
by her duties 
as the ARC,

programs which will enable students to 
become more involved on campus. 

One of her upcoming events is an" Escape 
to Santa Barbara," which she hopes is the 
first of many trips and hopes to offer more 
weekend programs. 

While Brown spends a considerable 
amount of her time coordinating activities 
for students, she is also available for 
counseling or to give advice. 

One of her programs is "Coping With 
College," which will enable students to 
look at their education as a whole: spiritually, 
academically, and physically. The program 
will be held tomorrow and Sept. 21 from 7 
to 8 p.m. in the Chapel Lounge. 
Through her programs and events Brown 
carries out her outlook on campus ministry, 
which says that "religion is what you do 
when the service is over."

in Cal Lu choir 


Staff Writer 

A concert tour to Hawaii is one of 
the choir's most anticipated events of 
the upcoming year.

and perform in various cities, including 

The choir plans to perform at high 
schools in an effort to recruit possible 
CLU students, and will more than likely 
present concerts in the evenings at

additional interest in singing in the 
choir," said Dr. Wyant Morton, director 
of choral activities. 

Matt Smith, a continuing member of 
the CLU choir is looking forward to the 
trip to Hawaii. "I've never been there

Drama Club 

Activities with children 
bring smiles to little faces 

Staff Writer 

The Drama Gub has plenty of activities 
this year for students interested in the 
performing arts. Club president Michelle 
Levine said planned activities include 
theater outings, face paintings and radio 

One of the club's popular activities is a 
theater outing to the Thousand Oaks Civic 
Arts Plaza. In this activity, club members 
and other drama students have the 
opportunity to preview performances by 
the Santa Susana Repertory Theater. 

"It's a big event for us, and I would like 
to get everyone involved this year," Levine 

Another event planned by the Drama 
Club this year is a face painting . At this 
event, club members will paint cat faces on 
youngsters. It will be held at the Thousand 
Oaks Mall in conjunction with the opening 
of "Cats" at the Civic Arts Plaza. A 
Halloween face painting is also planned 
this year. 

"I want to get more children involved in 
the arts," she said. 

One of the ways the club is attracting 
children to the arts is through a weekly 
radio program. The program airs each 
Sunday on KCLU, and club members 
could be heard reading children's stories. 

Levine also plans to bring a group of 
CLU students to local elementary schools 
to read and act out stories for the children. 

"With all the spending cuts in the arts, 
it's important for us to get involved with 
children and hopefully get them interested 
in the arts, " she said. 

The Drama Club also assists with theater 
productions and Homecoming festivities 
at CLU. In addition , the club hosts 
speakers in the drama field and offers 
internship opportunities for its members. 

Michael Arndt, associate professor of 
drama and club adviser, said the Drama 
club at CLU was started "about 30 years 
ago" by drama students. 

Today, the club is a diverse group of 
students with a common love of the 
performing arts. 

"We've got people who work behind the 
scenes, not just actors," Levine said. 
The club is open to all students who are 
interested in dramatic arts. Members 
include set designers, costume makers and 
students who are interested in other aspects 
of the theater. 

With all that the club has to offer, Levine 
and Arndt hope to attract more members 
this year. 

"We hope more people become involved 
in drama," Arndt said. 

Interested students should contact the 
Drama Department ext.3415.

Trainers great assets 

Earn valuable career experience 


Staff Writer 

Athletic trainers at CLU have a difficult 
job, but the learning experience they gain 
proves beneficial. 

The job is essential to the entire athletic 

"I enjoy taking care of the athletes. It is a 
rewarding experience for me because I am 
constantly learning something new," said 
Evi Orologas, junior and CLU athletic 

The job entails massages, rub downs, 
stretching, icing and taping. 

Athletic trainers are preproceptive 
neuromuscular facilitators (they administer 
resistance exercise for strengthening ). 
There are over ten athletic trainers who 
offer their services to all CLU sports. 

They arrive in the training room one hour 
before helping the athletes. Being a trainer 
is open to faculty members and the CLU 
student body. The experience can help 
students in their future careers. 

"i am using this experience as a stepping 
stone. My career ambition is to be a 
physical therapist," Orologas said. 

They are respected by athletes and 
coaches because of their importance to 
the athletic program. 

"I enjoy helping them and spending 
time with them," Orologas said. 

The trainers have a huge responsibility 
to make sure the athletes are stretched and 
have plenty of water. 

"We make sure players get their water 
four hours a day," she added. 

During "hell week" for football, the 
athletic trainers started at 7:30 am and 
went to 6:00 pm. 

"This was a long day, but I enjoyed 
learning the techniques needed to be a 
good trainer," Orologas said. 

The dress code for practices is trainer 
shirt and blue or tan shorts. For games 
their dress code is white, plain, trainer 
polo and tan shorts. 

Cross Country season 
gets underway 

Whittier Invitational opens schedule 


Staff Writer 

country teams got their season under way 
Saturday at the Whittier Invitational in Buena 

The women were led by freshman 
Amy Van Atta whose fifteenth place finish 
ranked her eighth among SCIAC competitors. 
Junior Jed Colvin anchored the men's team 
finishing nineteenth overall and second 
among SCIAC runners. 

The teams will continue action 
Saturday at the Westmont Invitational. 

The Whittier Invitational had a 
variety of competitors for CLU. It consisted 
of many unattached runners, club teams, 
several NCAA Division II schools and most 
SCIAC schools. 150 men and 120 women 
competed in the event. 
"Today was a good start for many 

individuals on the team," head coach Derek 
Turner said. "Many of our athletes didn't 
compete due to illness and eligibility 
technicalities. We will be better prepared 
for next week." 

Sophomore Cory Stigile had a strong 
showing for the men, finishing fourty-firsL 
Junior Scott Shugarts finished sixty-fourth 
and freshman Mark Bash came in one 
hundred thirteenth. 

Freshman Kelly Swanson finished one 
hundred second and sophomore Michelle 
Mollcr finished one hundred tenth in their 
first collegiate races. 

Turner, hoping to build a solid base for his 
teams, was pleased with these individual 
performances. "Amy Van Atta looked very 
strong," he said. "She, like Jed, will be a 
threat for this years conference titles. 

"The addition of Scott Shugarts will 
greatly improve our chances of moving up 
as a team as well," he added.

Overtime victory for 
Kingsmen soccer 

Central Washington next foe 

Staff Writer 

The Kingsmen soccer team used a 
strong offense and clutch defense to 
preserve a 4-3 overtime victory over 
Cal State Dominguez Hills Saturday. 

The victory pushed the Kingsmen 's 
record to (2-3). 

Their next match will be Thursday at 
home versus Central Washington 

Head coach Dan Kuntz is looking 
forward to the upcoming game. "They 
traditionally have players who are on 
scholarship," he said. "It will be a good 
challenge for us." 

However, the victory over 
Dominguez Hills will give the 
Kingsmen some momentum. 

With the Kingsmen trailing 1-0, 
sophomore AluedeOkokhere scored with 
3:24 left in the first half. He added a 
second goal midway through the second 
half, but Dominguez Hills answered with 
a goal of there own three minutes later. 

The score remained knotted at two until 
Dominquez Hills scored with 6:23 left in 
the first overtime period. However, 
sophomore Jim Marshall came back with 
a goal two minutes later. 

Sophomore Brian Collins got the 
Kingsmen going by scoring less than two 
minutes into the second overtime period. 

Given thirteen minutes to protect the 
lead, the Kingsmen defense, led by senior 
goalkeeper Ryan Kaufman stepped up to 
protect the lead. 

"The word was character," Kuntz said. 
"I was proud of everybody."

Volleyball season starts 

Victory over Westmont in opener 


Staff Writer 

California Lutheran ' s women 's volleyball 
team opened their 1995 campaign with a 
convincing three game victory over 
Westmont College (15-13, 15-13, 15-6) 
Saturday night in the gym. 

The match was a typical opening game 
with both teams making their share of mental 

In the first two games, the Regals failed 
to put away the pesky Westmont team 
squandering a 12-3 lead. 

The second game was much the same 
story. The Regals again built up a big lead, 
and seemed to relax a little to much as the 
Warriors pecked away at the deficit 

The third game seemed to go more CLU's 
way as they quickly built up a lead and 
refused to let Westmont crawl their way 
back into the game. 

The Regals next action will be Friday and 
Saturday, Sept. 15-16, when they travel to 
Cal Poly Pomona to com pete in a prestigious 
two-day tournament 

The Regals, who finished 20-9 last 
season, will begin their SCIACtiUedefense 
on Sept. 23, at home against Claremont- 

Experience will be one of die strong 
points this year, as the Regals have seven 
returning players from last year's NCAA 
Division III West Regional finalists. 

One way they can improve on this is to 
play a tougher schedule at the beginning of 
the year. 

Last Sunday, in an exhibition match 
against the Volleyball Federation of Latvia, 
CLU lost all five games (15-1, 15-8, 15-6, 
15-6. 15-8). 

But this loss is not as disappointing as it 
sounds; Cal State L.A., ranked fifth in 
Division II lost to the Latvians(15-3, 15-3, 

The Cal Poly Pomona Invitational 
Tournament should also be a great test for 
the Regals as many of the top division II 
and n I teams will be competing. 

With this in mind hope arises that there 
will be a return trip to the regi onal s , bringing 
the possibility of a national championship.

Regals soccer begins 

First league game today 


Staff Writer 

The Regals soccer team came into the 
game Saturday versus Cal S tate Dom inguez 
Hills with a history of being able to score 
almost at will. 

However, the Dominguez Hills defense 
proved to be every bit as tough as the 
Regals' defense, and held CLU to a 1-1 tie. 

CLU's next contest will be today at the 
University of Redlands. 

The game against Dominguez Hills was 
dominated by the defenses through 
regulation. The two teams went into 
overtime knotted at 0-0. 

"We had many opportunities today to get 
the lead in the game and keep it," head 
coach Dan Kuntz said. 

The Regals took advantage of one 
opportunity two minutes into the first 
overtime when junior Jennifer Tuck finally 
broke the Dominguez Hills defense and 

The CLU defense, led by senior 
goalkeeper Amy Walz, played a brilliant 
game. However, with just over seven 
minutes left, Dominguez Hills finally 
managed to get on the board. 

Neither team was able to add another 
goal over the last seven minutes, and the 
contest ended in a 1-1 tie. 

However, Kuntz is positive about hi; 
teams chances versus Redlands today. "It's 
always tough on us when we go there," he 
said. "(But) we should have a good showing 
against Redlands."

CLUb Striders unites campus 

runners and joggers 

Coach Turrter unites leisure runners 


Staff Writer 

At the end of the spring semester last 
year, cross country and track distance coach 
Derek Turner and some students decided to 
set up a meeting place for anyone who was 
interested in running, walking or jogging 
with other students and faculty. 

That was the beginning of CLUb Striders, 
a new organization at California Lutheran 

Coach Turner came up with the idea of 
CLUb Striders when he noticed many 
students and faculty running, walking or 
jogging by themselves. 

"I felt the need for people to meet and run 
together," he said. 

Turner also stressed that the club is not 
just for competitive runners. 

The cross country coach said he knows 
about local exercise groups which charge 
their members fees. However, CLUb 
Striders is a free organization that anyone 

can join. 

In fact, 15 to 20 people are interested 

Turner explained he would like to see 
other things done in addition to the new 
group's daily exercise meetings as part of 
CLUb Striders such as developing T-shirts 
and organizing a campus-wide fun run, 
which should unite everyone a CLU. 

Turner is very excited about this new 
exercise group. 

"I am hoping this club will help people 
come together and socialize. Anyone can 
walk if they are interested in socializing. It 
is not just for runners," he said. 

CLUb Striders meets at 7 a.m. and at 5 
p.m. daily. 

However, these times will probably 
change once more interest is generated, 
Turner said. 

He can be reached by calling his office at 
ext. 3862 for information and advice about 
CLUb Striders. 

He is also available by e-mail at

Egertson addresses religion and leadership 

Bishop stresses religious pluralism and faith to CLU community 


Editor in Chief 

There are a variety of ways 
religion might be destructive to 
people, Rev. Dr. Paul Egertson 
told the audience assembled in 
the chapel on Monday. 

The speaker, who is bishop of 
the west synod of the Evangelical 
Lutheran Church in America, 
focused on religious pluralism 
and religious faith as part of the 
fall lecture series on leadership. 

"In the Christian tradition there 
is a critical distinction to be 
made between religion based on 
legality and law, and religion 
based on the gospel," Egertson 

He further discussed this in 
terms of those things that need to 
be preserved and those that need 
to be changed as well as the 
distinction between unity and 

"Religion that insists on 
uniformity is liable to go culuc," 
Egertson said. 

He further emphasized religion 
as driven by grace, saying it is 
liable to lead to health. 

"Healthy religion will be lived 
out on the line of what needs to 
be the same and what needs to be 
changed," Egertson said. — 

He also mentioned the change taking 
place in our world and how itaffects people. People are afraid of losing all things country is running through a period of this 

"I think we are in a time of change, beautiful," he said, adding, "I think our at this time."

Moving the focus back to the idea of 
leadership, Egertson responded to the 
question of who the great religious leaders 
of our time are. 

Writing center offers students help with papers 


Staff Writer 

It's the week before a paper is due and 
you're panicking! What do you do? 

The Writing Center is a place where 
any student, struggling with how to start 
or fine tune a final paper can go. 

"We have tutors from many different 
majors who can help with writing for 
different subjects, for example, I know 
the difference between biology writing 
and media writing while another tutor 
would know better the difference between 
maybe two other subjects," Shawn Mak, 

second semester junior and writing center 
tutor said. 

The center employs eight tutors who are 
there from 12-5 Monday through Friday, 
and on evenings between the hours of 7-9, 
Sunday through Thursday. 

The center is in the librarary's Study 
Room B 

"Students can bring in already written 
papers on any subject and we can help them 
with thesis and organization, or they can 
bring in there assignment and we can help 
with outline or ideas", Emily Kriekard- 
scnior said. 

Students find it easier to listen to their 

peer's suggestions. 

Lien Tang, freshmen says, "It was good 
advice, she (Emily Kriekard) wentthrough 
everything point by point.. .It's good I can 
go to someone and not stress out, there's 
someone here who can help me" 

"I really enjoy working here because I 
learn a lot from their papers. 

"Itis rewarding toknow that I've helped 
someone in a small way to not be so 
frustrated with writing because my 
Freshman year I was very frustrated. I 
feel like I can empathize with people", 
Emily Kriekard said.

CLUnet expanding features 

ISS increases number of departmental home pages 


Director of Info. Services 

During the summer, 

several new items were 
added to the resources 
of the CLUnet, CLU's 
campus wide 

information system. At 
the end of June, CLU 
debuted its new home 
page on the World 
Wide Web 


The new page 
features the graphic 
design talents of Mike 
Adams, director of 
publications at CLU. 

During the summer 
months we were 
averaging 39.1 queries 
to our home page per 
hour (24 hours a day). 

A growing number 
of departmental home 
pages now including 
home pages from 
computer science, 
drama, English, 
philosophy and 
justice are accessible 
via CLU's home page. 
Also, there is now a 
home page for the 
S toner Clark Lectures. 
Check it out to find out about this years 
speaker/lectures or to see what took place in 
past years. 

The university catalog, academic calendar 
and class schedules are also available via 
the home page. 

Under the Campus Services item on the 

CLU home page one can find all of the 
courses offered by Information Systems 
and Services, with descriptions and the dates 

and limes they are offered. One can even 
sign-up electronically right there. 

Three new electronic journal indexes are 
accessible through CLUnet: " ABI Inform," 
Fulltext (Business) and 
"Periodical Abstracts," 
Fulltext (Humanities, 
Social Sciences, 
Sciences). These two 
indexes have the full text 
of journal articles for 
about one third of the 
journal titles they index. 
An individual can view/ 
print the full text online, 
"ERIC" (Education). 
All of these new 
resources work in 
conjunction with the 
other features of 
CLUnet, which enables 
one to take information 
from a resource on the 
Internet or elsewhere 
and cut and paste it into, 
for example, a Word 

In future 

articles, we'll talkabout 
some of these new 
resources in more detail 
as well as highlight 
additional new 

resources as they are 
added to CLUnet. 

Remember to 

take advantage of the 

courses offered by ISS 

during the semester to 

find out how to get the most out of a 

CLUnet account. These short courses are 

free for registered CLU students.

"I'm not sure Christianity is any 
longer run by great leaders," he said. 
He added society is moving towards 
a more community type of leadership. 

He also feels this is true politically. 

"The world has moved into a phase 
where it is moved more by the 
community than by leaders," he said. 

In order for people to grow with 
this and learn, Egertson said people 
should learn by living examples 
instead of by just rules. 

Before he finished Egertson left 
the audience with a piece of advice. 
"When you say something you're not 
ready to say, you'll probably regret it 
later," he said.

Continuing controversy 
about the weather 

It has come to our attention that there 
have been a few things in The Echo lately that 
may have caused some people distress. 

It is not our goal to annoy readers. If, 
however, we ever do, we invite people to write a 
letter to the editor. It is the best form of feedback 
for us. 

This has been explained to people time 
and time again. However, since no one wants to 
write a letter about something that annoys them, 
maybe they would be more willing to write about 
something they consider completely unimportant 

We will now discuss the weather. 

Summer seems to be coming to a close. 
The heat slowly fades day after day. The nights 
are getting colder and longer. 

More and more clouds have been 
appearing in the sky, blocking out the skin cancer 
creating rays of the sun. 

Any day now we expect to come upon a 
rain storm. It won't be of the summer shower 
variety either, but a torrential winter downpour. 

The fog rolls in and out each night, and 
each night it seems thicker than the night before. 

When we wake up early in the morning 
for that 8 a.m. class, the frost seems to stay on the 
ground longer and longer. 

It might be interesting if it would snow 
at CLU one year. This man-made oasis in the 
middle of the desert could use a good tobogan 

As the seasons change again, and winter 
pulls its icy grip away from our throats, we can 
look forward to the springtime flowers, the 
flooding of Kingsmen Creek and the Santa Ana 
winds blowing their hot breath down the back of 
our necks. 

Then, summer will soon be upon us 
again. The days will be hot and the the nights 
will have a bite to them. The desert weather will 
continue on as it always has, despite what one 
editorial in The Echo may say about it. 

The sun will continue to shine, the moon 
will continue to rise. The clouds will continue to 
show up and the rain will continue to fall. The 
winds will continue to blow and the fog will 
continue to roll. 

In the end, what one student newspaper 
says has absolutely no effect on the "larger 
picture." But there we go getting philosophical, 
and we all know what philosophy leads to. The 
big c word: Controversy. 

We ' ve said all we can about the weather. 
Next week we'll continue on in our duties to 
bring you news and make you aware of issues we 
think you may be interested in. Until then ... 

Have an un-controversial week. 


Letters to the Editor are encouraged and accepted for 
comment on any subject The Echo covers on its Opinion 
pages. Letters should be typed and no longer than one page. 
Lengthier letters will be considered for columns or may be 
requested to be published so by the author. The Echo 
reserves the right to correct grammar and edit due to space 
constrictions. Letters are due by Friday at 5 p.m. Please 
include name, year and major. Submit stories to The Echo 
office in the Pioneer House located across from Peters Hall,

Opposing Viewpoints 

The race for 
common ground 

By Mike Emery 

Contributing Writer 

Imagine a race. Several teams are lined up at the 
starting line, but when the whistle is blown, only one 
team is allowed to run. The other teams are forced to 
wait at the starting line, while the first team makes 
several trips around the course. The first team is able 
to pass the baton between several of the team members, 
while the other teams are left waiting and watching. 
Then, finally, the other teams are allowed to start 
running. Now all the teams are running, and they are 
all entitled to run the same speed, to ensure that 
everything is equal. 

We have an obligation to take the 

necessary steps to ensure everyone has 

the same opportunities. 

But are they equal? Obviously not, the first team 
has been running the race for a much longer time, and 
although the other teams are running now, they will 
never have the opportunity to catch up to the first 
team, unless some action is taken... 

Clearly this is an analogy to the current situation in 
the United States. Affirmative action is the belief that 
certain groups of people, who, due to the discrimination 
that they have experienced in the past, need help in 
experiencing the equality that is rightfully theirs. 
These groups, through no fault of their own, are faced 
with the reality that they will have to work harder to 
gel less. According to the "Statistical Abstract of the 
United States," 1994 Edition, the median income for 
Caucasian families in 1993 was $38,909, while the 
median income of Afro-American and Chicano 
families in 1993 was $21,161 and $23,7 14 respectively. 
This is clearly not equality. Afro- American families' 
median income was just over half that of the median 
income of Caucasian families. Women make an 
average of $.67 for every dollar that men make doing 
the same work. Something needs to be done, because 
this is not equality. 

This situation cannot be resolved overnight, but this 
does not mean that we do not have a responsibility to 
try. We have an obligation to take the necessary steps 
to ensure everyone has the same opportunities. In the 
United States we have a unique opportunity to make 
use of our diversity. Business' survive based on their 
ability to adapt to changing situations. The most 
intelligent choice is to develop a diverse range of 
perspectives on how to deal with problems. This 
guarantees that more of the options are seen and 
considered, and it improves the likelihood that the best 
decisions are reached. 

We need to continue programs such as affirmative 
action until such a point and time that everyone has the 
same opportunity of achieving .their dreams. One of 
the biggest arguments against affirmative action is the 
belief that it is reverse discrimination. Affirmative 
action is not about hindering someone from getting a 
job, it is about helping people, who, if all things were 
equal, would get that job anyway. If I do not get a job 
because an Afro- American or a Chicano or a woman 
gets that job, fine. If it is because of affirmative action, 
that's fine as well. If I were to get a job over someone 
else, who would have gotten that job through 
affirmative action, then I am keeping someone from 
equality. The idea is that some people need help in 
being equal. The question is, are we ready to accept 
the responsibility of keeping people from having what 
is rightfully theirs - equality? 

Affirmative Action: A 
program in reverse 

By Robert Chatham 

Copy Editor 

Our founding fathers sought to establish this 
nation in order to ensure equality and fairness for 
all. Liberty, justice, equality, and fairness are 
provided for all Americans regardless of race, 
color or sex according to our Constitution. 
Affirmative action contradicts the ideas found 
within the Constitution. Quotas and preferential 
treatment oppose any possible notion of equality 
and fairness. 

Affirmative action is nothing more than a way to 
judge and single out certain individuals seeking 
education or employment by their race or gender. 
In fact, it takes away one's individuality when a 
person is looked at merely by race or gender rather 
than quality or performance. 

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s reason for living 
was to ensure equality for all. His dream was that 
one day a person might be judged for who they are 
as an individual, rather than their sex or skin color. 
W ith affirmauve ac lion programs. Dr. King 's dream 
is unattainable. 

Many minority leaders have admitted that 
affirmative action has not changed the problems 
that existed before it started. It is not a cure for 
racism, instead it fuels contempt between fellow 
students and employees. This is only a natural 
reaction when one person works hard to earn a spot 
while another may have gotten a spot simply to 
meet a required quota. 

Every student at CLU gained admission under 
the same criteria; they earned it. This should give 
every student a sense of pride and equality. But 
what if like many state programs, one student 
worked long and hard to get accepted based on 
their individual qualities, while another student 
was accepted not based on their individual qualities 
and accomplishments but because of their race and 
gender. This surely would create contempt and 
animosity, however subtle, in the student who's 
only chance of admittance was hard work. 

Eliminating quotas and preferential 

treatment will be the first step to a 

color-blind society and the equal 

treatment that is guaranteed in the 

14th Amendment of the Constitution. 

Affirmative action can also become a crutch to 
those it is supposed to be lifting up. With the 
elimination of affirmative action would be the 
creation of a level playing field that would create 
competition and pull the best out of every individual 
who wishes to succeed. 

Racism is wrong and must come to an end, but 
affirmative action is not a means to that end. 
Eliminating quotas and preferential treatment will 
be the first step to a color-blind society and the 
equal treatment that is guaranteed in the 14th 
Amendment of the Constitution. Programs that 
provide for inequality must be abolished. The 60's 
are over, and we have moved into the 90's where 
the blame game must end and everyone must take 
responsibility for their own outcome. 

Assemblyman Bern ie Richter stated it best when 
he concluded, "There is automatically an abuse 
when the government uses race, sex and ethnicity 
to make governmental policy. Making policy 
decision based on a person's ethnicity - on the way 
they were bom - is wrong."

Urioste on sabbatical 

Helping to start a CSU in Monterey 


Staff Writer 

Donaldo Urioste, associate professor of 
Spanish, is on a leave of absence from CLU 
this year. According to Urioste, he is 
"organizing a language program" at Cal 
Slate Monterey. 

Urioste will help implement a foreign 
language program and teach Spanish at the 
new state university. However, the Spanish 
professor is expected to return next year to 

"He's still with our staff and he'll be back 
to teach again," Walter Stewart, chairman 
of the foreign language department, said. 

Both Stewart and Urioste feel that learning 
a foreign language is an important part of a 
CLU education. 

"We're very concerned about student 
progress in foreign language," Stewart said. 

CLU students are required to study at 
least two semesters of a foreign language. 
While some students may complain about 
this requirement, Stewart and Urioste feel 
that fluency in a foreign language is an 
important skill in today's world. 

"It's more important than ever, especially 
with the globalization of 
economies, "Stewart 
said. Urioste believes 
America can no longer 
continue to be 
"arrogant" and 
"ethnocentric" in its 
world views. 

"We can no longer 
rely entirely on 
ourselves because we 
live in a global 
society," he said. 

Immigration and 
international trade are 
forcing more 

businesses to deal with 
foreign languages and 
cultures. This in turn, 
creates a demand for 
workers who are 
competent in a foreign 

"It's especially 
important if you're 
going into 

education and 

business," Stewart 

Aside from being a 
valuable asset in the 

working world, Stewart feels that fluency 
in a foreign language allows people of 
different cultures to communicate more 

"There's an instant rapport with people 
when you speak their language. It won't 
happen when you're mumbling a few 
phrases from a book," he said. 

Urioste believes that learning a foreign 
language also allows people to understand 
each other better. "It opens a door to another 
culture," he said. 

One of the ways students can exercise 
and improve their foreign language skills is 
through CLU's study abroad program. It 
gives students the opportunity to learn the 
language and culture of a foreign country. 

"There's nothing like being immersed in 
a culture for awhile, and it's one of the best 
ways to learn a language," Stewart said. 

For students who choose to stay home, 
CLU offers six foreign languages of study: 
French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese 
and Spanish. 

Stewart and Urioste hope students will 
master a foreign language after completing 

"It will prepare you forourglobal society," 
Urioste said. 

Bjelke receives award 


Staff Writer 

At the academic convocation on Sep. 5, 
political science and English major Brad 
Bjelke, sophomore, received the Amelia C. 
Shuhe Scholarship. 

The scholarship came as a result of his 
being the lop scholar in the sophomore class 
and maintaining a 4.0 grade point average. 
In addition to maintaining a perfect GPA, 
he also juggles a job at University Relations 
and is the treasurer of the Student Alumni 

Association. He is aspiring to attend law 
school after graduation. 

Bjelke came to CLU with a strong history 
of academic achievement. He graduated 
from Saugus High School as the class 
valedictorian, but was not recognized at 
graduation. This earned him a spot on the 
Mark and Brian radio program where, 
among other things, he was able to do the 
sports and weather reports. 

"I feel very honored to receive the 
scholoarship," Bjelke said. "It shows that 
hard work does pay off." 

CSC strives to bring 
students and 
community together 

New director applauds 
Volunteer fair 


Staff Writer 

Many opportunities are available for 
students who want to volunteer their 
services to people in need, Janice Levine, 
director of the CLU Community Service 
Center (CSC), said. 

Besides trying to help the Thousand 
Oaks and Ventura County communities, 
CSC also strives to help CLU students in 
many respects. 

"We are not only helping the 
community, wearealsogiving the students 
opportunities to find out more about 
themselves and what they want to do with 
their lives," Levine said. 

CSC, located in the "round building" 
(the Centrium), was formerly known as 
the University Volunteer Center. 

Levine conceded that the name change 
was appropriate when she came on board 
February 1995. 

"Part of my job for this next year is to 
get the center moving toward service 
learning, so we wanted to use the word 
'service' in there. 

"We also wanted to show the 
relationship to the community because 
the service that we're going to perform is 
going to be Cal Lutheran in partnership 
with community agencies, groups and so 
forth," Levine said. 

The University Volunteer Center was 
first conceived in 1990 when a handful of 
students saw a need for volunteer services 
on campus, but found none available. 

With the help of staff through the student 
activities office and the career placement 
office, the University Volunteer Center 
got off to a good start. 

It has since grown to become the CSC 
that students are familiar with today. 

"(CSC) can be as big as we want it to 
be," Levine said. 

"In a given year, I would think that we 
have several hundred people who would 
actually either have volunteered directly 
through the CSC or who would have 
come in here, found something and then 
gone out and connected (with agencies) 
on their own," she added. 

CSC gets an average of three to five 
calls a week from different agencies 
soliciting for help. 

One of the greatest challenges that the 
center faces, however, is the difficulty in 
trying to reach more students. 

Levine acknowledged that the 
Volunteer Fair, held on campus on Sep. 7. 
was a good form of advertising. 

"It was very successful. It was our first, 
and we had no idea what to expect. 

"We have hoped to have 20 agencies 
here - there were 30; we had no idea how 
many students would turn up - and then 

we had almost 200 students come," Levine 

However, even if every student were to 
do volunteer work, she added, "we still 
probably couldn't fill all the requirements 
and needs that are out there." 

That, Levine said, is both a challenge 
and a frustration. 

"One of the things for us this year is 
definitely to build our database of potential 

The CSC is working hard to get the 
publicity out through posters, flyers and 
the newspaper. 

Those interested in volunteering their 
services or even start their own projects 
can simply stop by the CSC where they 
can find the "blue book" which lists all 
the different agencies and useful contact 

Folders on agencies such as Habitat for 
Humanity, AIDS Care, American Cancer 
Society, Child Abuse and Neglect, Inc. 
and literacy programs are also available 
for references and perusal. 

"There are about 20 (agencies) that we 
are really active with and another 20 that 
are peripheral," Levine said. 

The most popular ones with students 
on campus are those involving children 
and the disabled. 

CSC is renewing the Shadow Hills 
Tutoring Program, which began Sep. 18. 

Tutors in that program will not only 
help children with their schoolwork but 
also interact with them and teach them 
social skills. 

Another big project is Best Buddies, a 
national program founded by the Kennedy 
family that now has a chapter at CLU. 

This isaprogram which seeks to match, 
one-on-one, college students with 
developmen tally disabled adults for social 

Levine said that the CSC is like a 
matchmaking organization propelled by 
three main goals. 

"One is to find meaningful volunteer 
opportunities and experiences that 
(students) would enjoy for the spirit of 
volunieerism or that would help them 
with classes or with career planning. 

"We also want to serve as a 
clearinghouse or liaison with the 
community," she added. 

The third goal, Levine said, is service 
learning, where students would perform 
services with an agency or community 
project that would apply the knowledge 
that they've learned in a classroom and 
for which they would also receive credit 
through their professors. 

"It's one thing to study in class but 
another to really gel the reality of a 
situation," she said. 

Your parents were right about this one 

A message from C.A.R.E. - Creating a Rape Free Environment 

And if they didn't tell you, I will. There 
are people in this world who will hurt you. 
Sometimes very consciously, and 
sometimes without realizing. So wake up. 
You've lived in the same dorm with these 
people since September. That nice boy 
wouldn't do anything to hurt you. He has 
animal posters on his wall, and a little sister 
he adores. Maybe you'reright, maybe you're 
wrong. Why take the chance? Imagine the 
following scenario... 

He knocks on the door. She doesn't 
really know him well, but her friends party 
with him often. So, she smiles and settles 
back on to her bed as he walks in. They chat. 
He is drunk and sometimes funny. Without 
thinking, she rubs her shoulders because 
they're tense and sore from the hours spent 

writing that paper last night. He notices and 
offers to give her a massage. " How sweet 
of him," she thinks as he stammers on about 
his high school. 

"He's a little drunk but entertaining. " 
Her shoulders feel better, so she pulls away. 
He politely gets up and moves back to the 
desk chair as she leans against her pillows, 
knees pulled against her chest. All so 
innocent. Such normal behavior in a dorm 
on this small campus. So what is it that 
made him get off the chair? Sit on the edge 
of her bed. Lean over and kiss her? Perhaps 
she kissed him back. "He was a nice guy, so 
why not?" And it was fine. 

Then she tried to get up. 

Then she tried to get him off. 

Maybe she screamed. Maybe she kicked. 
And punched and cried. 


she didn't. But he never got off. And 
quietly he whispered into her ear. Pressure. 
She stops struggling, and lies still. Head, 
empty. He moves with confidence, control. 
" There's a crack in my ceiling," she thinks. 
With a groan he rolls off her. Smiles. His 
eyes say, 'There now. That wasn't so bad, 
wasit?" Like a doctor after an injection. He 
leaves. She picks up her book, and watches 
the words as they float in her tears. And she 
is scared. 

And I was scared as I listened. And a 
week later, it happens again. Same guy. 
Same girl. Just another quiet night in the 

She never SAID no. But he never asked. 
Because he didn't care. This happens every 
day and every night, to people you know, by 
people you know. The guy may be sober, 
the girl may be drunk. But we all learned in 
kindergarten — ask before taking, and don't 
touch what isn't yours. And women — Yes 
is Yes, and No is NO. Please don't continue 
the legacy of mixed signals. 

This is a chain letter. Send one to the 
people you care about, or are afraid of. In 
any school, in any country. Please write the 
name of your school at the bottom, and 
place an X beside it if someone you know 
has been a victim of assault or rape. And 
please, don't be afraid to say no, regardless 
of your gender. Just saying " No " won't 
always work, but it's a start. 

The Doctor's Column 

Chiropractic takes its place 
in the world of medecine. 


Contributing Writer, CLU Alum 

This year marks the 100th anniversary of 
the birthof chiropractic. Spinal adjustments 
were first performed by early Egyptians but 
it was not until 1895 mat Daniel David 
Palmer modernized chiropractic. 

A longtime student of anatomy and 
physiology, he formulated the theory of the 
spinal subluxation and pioneered the process 
of adjusting the spine to correct nerve 
interference caused by misaligned vertebrae. 

Palmers first patient, a janitor, had been 
deaf for seventeen years following an injury 
to his upper spine. 

Examining the patient's spine. Palmer 
identified a misaligned vertebra 
corresponding to the area of spinal injury. 
He administered a specific thrust to the 
vertebra, restoring the patient's hearing. 

The foundation of chiropractic is based 
upon applied anatomy and 
physiology. It concerns itself with 
the relationship of the spinal column 
and the musculoskeletal structures 
of the body to the nervous system. 

Since the nervous system controls 
and coordinates the functions of all 
the other systems of the body, health 
or lack of disease, relies upon the 
balance and equilibrium of the 
components of the nervous system. 

This balance and equilibrium can 
be affected by misalignments in the 
spine, known as subluxations, 
resulting in pain and disfunction of 
body processes. 

Chiropractic, in its most simple 
form, is the adjustment of the spine 
to remove these subluxations and 
thereby restore normal nerve and 
body functions. 

Throughout its 100 year history, 
chiropractic has undergone many of 
the trials and tribulations of a 
developing science. 

Countless people have fought for 
its recognition as a primary health 
care profession. 

Among its strongest supporters 

are professional athletes such as Joe 
Montana and Roscoe Tanner, and fitness 
enthusiasts such as Joe Wiederand Arnold 

In addition, chiropractors are an integral 
part of the medical support team of many 
professional sports organizations. 

Today, chiropractic is one of the fastest 
growing health professions for two 
reasons: The public's growing awareness 
and demand for natural and non-invasive 
methods of treatment, and predominantly 
because of its remarkable effectiveness. 

In 1993, nearly 30 million Americans 
sought chiropractic health care and this 
figure is increasing at an unprecedented 

The Department of Health and Human 
Services now classifies doctors of 
chiropractic as primary health care providers 
along with medical doctors, doctors of 
osteopathy and doctors of dental science.

Camp staffers 
lead worship 
at Wednesday 
chapel service 


Religion Editor 

Lively songs and guitar music at 
Wednesday's chapel service carried 
with it the memories of summers spent 
away at Bible camp. 

The service was led by students 
who had spent their summers working 
at Christian camps. They shared their 
summer experiences with the 

"All you saw was God changing 
kids' lives," said senior Rich Gregory, 
who worked at El Camino Pines and 
Camp Yolijiwa. 

Following several camp songs that 
had the congregation on their feel and 
moving around, the students 
performed a skit entitled "Ragman." 

The skit took the place of the homily 
usually given during chapel and 
centered around a Christ figure who 
took the pain and sorrows of others 
upon himself. 

Along with the songs and skit, 
several of the camp staffers shared 
their experiences of the summer. 

Junior Heidi Person, who worked 
as a counselor at El Camino Pines 
recalled the challenge she faced when 
a group she was leading included two 
autistic boys. 

However, an inspiring moment 
arose out of that challenge, she said, 
when the entire group of fourth graders 
formed a human chain to help one 
struggling autistic boy up a hill. 

Senior Becca Thiede said the staff 
she worked with at Ml Cross left as 
much as a lasting impression on her as 
the kids did. 

"I've not only been affected by the 

campers, but also by my fellow staff," 

Thiede said. 
Thiede said the staff members share 

a common experience and build a 

lasting bond. 

"They see you at your worst and 
they see you at your best," she said. 

Along with the chances she had to 
build relationships, senior Tracy 
Bersley said that her time at Ml Cross 
offered her many opportunities for 
personal growth. 

"You discover things you would 
never discover otherwise," Bersley 

Greg Fry, executive director of Ml. 
Cross, explained how difficult it can 
be to leave the Christian environment 
that exists at camp. 

"This bond is there and now 
suddenly it's broken," Fry said. 

Bersley explained the dependence 
that camp staffers and Christians in 
general have upon one another. 

She said people are like angels with 
one wing. "Only when we hold on to 
another person can we really fly," she 

Professor spends year abroad 

New insight into American education gained 

Staff Writer 

The education German university students 
receive is considerably different than what 
American students are used to, said Dr. 
Deborah Sills, religion professor. 

Sills was on leave for the last academic 
year. During this time she taught graduate 
seminars at The American Institute which 
is part of the University of Munich in 

"All my students were graduate students 
that had master degrees in American Studies 
and were familiar with the United States, 
which made it interesting," Sills said. 
She said she had also taught students from 
Poland, Norway, and Russia which was a 
wonderful learning experience for her. 

Sills said she found thatGerman students 
were better prepared for college than 
American students. 

"They have worked hard in high school, 
so the issue is working hard in high school 
to get into the university," she said. 

Sills said she believes that the reason 
students do not work as hard in college as 
they do in high school is because in college 
they can choose a less structured way of 

Deborah Sills 

life. She said she assumes that this is also 
because the professors there are not really 
interested in the students progress. 

"Students are basically on their own," 
she said. In fact , she continued to say mat 
there is no registrar to keep track of the 
courses or grades a student receives. 

Sills explained that it is up to the students 
to keep a paper, referred to as a shine, that 

a professor signs to give students their 
grades. When students have enough shines 
they are able to graduate. 

"The responsibility is not on the 
administration of the university, but on the 
student," she said. 

Sills said she thinks the German 
education could be improved if the 
professors would lake more time to meet 
with their students. 

Sills said she thinks that the reason for the 
lack of attention paid to students is that the 
system there does not require the professors 
to make time for their students. 

She said that another cause might be that 
the education there is free, so students are 
not driven to get through with the same kind 
of accomplishment as American students. 

Sills said that she is very glad to be back 
and hopes to offer a course in American 
Religious Studies in the spring here at 

She strongly urges CLU students to take 
advantage of an education abroad because 
she believes that in the long run it will pay 

"It gives you the advantage to look at the 
options that the world has to offer you," she

Geeting headlines Faculty Recital 

Staff Writer 

Dr. Daniel Geeting delighted a Samuelson 
Chapel audience as he and two other 
musicians performed at the 12th Annual 
Faculty Recital on Sunday . The recital 
featured Geeting on clarinet, his wife Joyce 
on the cello and Barbara Burgan on the 

The program began with Dan Geeting 
and Burgan playing a duet of Mozart's 
"Concerto in A major". This piece was 
written in three movements for a famous 
clarinetist of the time. 

The second selection was "Dance 

Preludes" by Witold Lutoslawski. 

This piece was more contemporary than 
the concerto, and was written for the modem 
clarinet. This also was a duet by Geeting and 
Burgan, and was played in five, short, quick 

Joyce Geeting joined the two to finish the 
program with "Opus 11" by Ludwig van 
Beethoven. This piece was written for 
Beethoven himself to play, and was quite a 
finale for the recital. It identified more with 
the first selection in theme and style, also 
being played in three movements. 

Dan Geeting was quite happy with the 
performance. "Everything went according to 
plan," he said.

Wildwood offers the opportunity to take in 
some of Thousand Oaks' natural beauty 

Park allows students to get up close and personal with nature 


Staff Writer 

Looking for somewhere to hike or bike 
for free close to CLU? Would you like to 
see a SO foot high waterfall cascade into a 
pool at your feet? 

Try Wildwood Park — it's just two short 
miles away — at the west end of A venida de 
los Arboles. 

Trails wind around the park and come 
out at picnic areas where you can have a 
barbeque or just rest in the shade. 

Indian Creek Trail passes Little Falls and 
Tepee Outlook on the way to Paradise Falls, 
which are both great destinations in 

The canyons in the park are amazing 
places; offering cool on a hot summer day 
and calm on the city limits. 

There are wooden bridges to cross and 
steps carved out of rock to negotiate. 

More than 60 species of birds, 37 species 
of mammals and 22 types of reptiles and 
amphibians can be found in Wildwood 

One of those reptiles is the rattlesnake 
and one of those mammals (though rare) is 
the mountain lion. 

Deer tracks are everywhere and cottontails 
insist on darting out of the bushes at your 
very feet as you are wondering where the 
rattlesnakes and mountain lions might be. 

Trails lead right up to the mesa above the 
park if you want to get close to these huge 
outcroppings and slabs of rock. But many 
interesting features line the trails along the 

Geological formations are radical , in your

Chapman intercepts 
Kingsmen's first win 

Mistakes cost CLU in 38-7 loss 


Staff Writer 

The Kingsmen couldn't overcome their 
turnovers losing 38-7 to Chapman last 
Saturday in front of a packed Chapman 
stadium of 3,274 people. 

It was Chapman's second game of the 
season while it was the Kingsmen's season 
opener as the teams played accordingly. 

The Kingsmen hurt themselves by 
throwing four interceptions and fumbling 

"We're working on ironing some things 
out," said head coach Joe Harper. 

The home opener is on Saturday at 1 p.m. 
against the University of San Diego. 

The game against Chapman was one of a 
few defensive breakdowns on defense and 
the turnovers on offense that eventually 
cost the Kingsmen. 

"We threw four interceptions, fumbled 
once and allowed some deep touchdown 
passes and runs," Harper said, adding, "It's 
basic fundamental things." 

Chapman outrushed the Kingsmen 271- 
54. Ken Herbs led CLU with 30 yards on 
ten carries. 

Quarterback Ryan Huisenga threw for 
182 yards to Chapman's 139 yards. Billy 
Parra led all receivers with ten catches. 

On defense, linebacker Chris Peltonen 
led everyone with 12 tackles. JustinMonical 
and Jeff Cahill added one sack each.

Men's soccer struggles 
through early season 

League begins Saturday at Whittier 

Staff Writer 

Just as hopes started to get high on the 
Kingsmen soccer team, the team was 
disappointed by a 3-0 loss to Westmont 

The loss dropped their record to 2-4, but 
the Kingsmen have played tough 
nonconference opponents. 

They open league Saturday at Whittier. 

The game Monday highlighted the 
Kingsmen's troubles in the early part of the 
season: defense. 

"Our biggest problem is letting in to 
many goals," said junior forward Jan 

The Kingsmen played poorly against a 
very talented Westmont team, and one fan 
summed up the game this way: "It just 
seemed like there were more Westmont 
players out there." 

About the only highlight was the play of 
sophomore striker Brian Collins. 

Earlier in the week, the team scored a big 
victory over Central Washington, coming 
back from a 2-0 deficit to win 4-2. 

The Kingsmen were led in that game by 
Aluede Okukhere who scored two goals, 
and Hammervold and Collins, who scored 
a goal each. 

"We played quite well," said Frode 
Davanger," and it was good to come from 

Aside from the league opener Saturday 
against Whittier, the Kingsmen also play a 
big game Sunday at 3:30 p.m. against UC 
San Diego at the North Field. 

As for the spin ts of the team , they are a bit 
confused as to the start of the season. 

"We started out quite bad, but then had 
two good games, and then we came back 
and played poorly against Westmont," said 

However, if the defensive problems can 
be addressed, the team should have enough 
firepower to have a successful season. 

CLU cross country 
beginning to hit stride 

Cal Tech Invitational Saturday 


Staff Writer 

The CLU men's and women's cross 
country squads made some improvements 
at the Westmont Invitational on Saturday. 
The Kingsmen finished fourth while the 
Regals placed fifth. 

The women were led by freshman Amy 
Van Aua, whose time of 21:10 placed her 
third out of 29 runners. Junior Jed Colvin 
paced the men's team. His time of 20:49 
was good for fourth out of 44 competitors. 

"We are much improved from last week," 
head coach Derek Turner said. "Everyone 
on the teams ran very well today against 
some strong local teams." 

Both teams will be competing at the Cal- 

Tech Invitational on Saturday morning. 

Sophomore Cory Stigile finished tenth 
for the Kingsmen with a time of 22:15. 
Junior Scott S h ugarts came in next at 22: 1 6. 

Roeline Hansen and Kelly Swanson had 
strong showings for the Regals. Hansen 
placed 15th with a time of 24:12 while 
Swanson finished 19th at 26:08. 

CLU's impressive showing at Westmont 
came despite not taking a break before the 

"As the season progresses our athletes 
times will improve tremendously. 
Especially once we start resting for meets," 
Turner said. "Our most important meets are 
still four weeks away. These early meets 
are good for race experience and quality 
workouts for us."

Team play leads Regals 
to undefeated record 

Talented team off to best start ever 

Staff Writer 

Regals soccer is off to a great start this 
year, in fact, their record of 5-0-1 is their 
best start ever. 

Monday, the Regals defeated Westmont 
2-0, with goals scored by Jen Tuck and Lara 
Heifner, adding to the great record. 

"We're really playing well as a team," 
said junior defender Mary Vincent 

After the game Monday, the Regals had 
completed their third game in five days, and 
had outscored the three opponents 9-0. 

These victories, including a 4-0 victory 
over Redlands and a 3-0 defeat of La V erne 
assured the team of their ability to win. 

"We should win league if we keep play ing 
the way we're playing," said Vincent, "and 
hopefully we can just go on from there." 

Although the Regals are a very deep 
team, a few players stand out. 

Jill Gallegos, the leading scorer last year, 
is once again leading the team in scoring. 

Defender Lara Philby has also stood out 
in the first few games and goalie Amy Walz 
is playing great, as evidenced by the three 
shutouts this past week. 

Other players making significant 
contributions include Emily Kanney , Kristin 
Taylor, Kim Holman, Deanne Luque, Jill 
Simmer, Margaret Vestal, Pattie Sueoka, 
Shannon Pennington, and Melissa Brown. 

The upcoming week holds three big 
challenges for the team. 

Today's game against Pomona-Pi tzer and 
Saturday's game against Whittier are both 
league games, but the Regals may be looking 
ahead to Sunday at 1 :00 p.m. in an important 
matchup with UC San Diego. 

"Sunday is probably our biggest game of 
the season, and we'd really like a lot of 
people to come out and support us," said 

Lara Philby kicks the ball upfield for the Regals against Dominguez Hills.

According to

have been "getting

Jolicoeur is the vice-

female or male.

Liberal Arts program adjusting to needs 

Changes made to accommodate student requirements 


Staff Writer 

CLU has always recognized the value of 
a degree in liberal arts and this belief is 
proving worthwhile in the business world 

Jan Knutson, the liberal arts major 
coordinator, said, "Recent studies have 
shown employers prefer students with a 
degree in liberal arts because of the varied 
curriculum they are expected to complete." 

Previously, liberal arts was considered a 
program for the "education oriented 
student," however, more people are opting 
for degrees in liberal arts as a way of pursuing 
careers in a wide variety of fields. "Many of 
my students are not going into the teaching 
field," Knutson says. 

The growing interest in the major has 
called for CLU to create new ways of 
accommodating the student's needs. 
Knutson says,"Students should be able to 
meet with their adviser as much as possible." 

Most recently, the School of Education, 
located in the Benson House, selected a 
departmental assistant, Kris ten Bengston, 
to assist in the academic advising process. 
Liberal arts majors report a great deal of 
planning is required to successfully 
complete the program in four years. 

Seven advisers provide guidance at the 
School of Education, but their time must be 
divided among all students in the program. 
For this reason, it becomes difficult to meet 
with an adviser for academic planning. But 
with the help of Bengston, students will be 
able to keep in contact with their adviser. 

Bengston , a senior at CLU, cannot replace 

an adviser, but she is able to answer many of 
the numerous questions liberal arts majors 

Knutson reminds students, "I am still the 
decision maker and Kristen is comfortable 
coming to me at any lime for answeres." 

Bengston has been assisting in the School 
of Education for the past year and is familiar 
with the requirements of the major. Knutson 
has been supervising Bengston's progress 
in order for her to develop the skills and 
confidence needed to assist in academic 

The knowledge Bengston has obtained 
while working in the School of Education 
has allowed for her advancement to peer 
advising. Knutson stresses the importance 
of Bengston's connection with the 
program,"As a liberal arts major herself.

SPEAKERS: Roles of 
women differ in world 

Continued from Front Page 

Beijing and Brubaker went to the one in 
Nairobi. These were official conferences of 
the Non-Government Organizations or 

Jolicoeur asked the two women about 
who leads the conferences. Mahmoudi said 
in Beijing the government delegations had 
power to vote and that all non-govemment 
representatives were "in civil society." 

Mahmoudi added that there were 26,000 
NGO attendees at the conference as opposed 
to 6,000 at the first conference in Mexico 

"We are finding needs are not being met," 
she said. 

One place needs are not being met is in 
private enterprise. 

"The bottom line is profit. It is not 
meeting the needs of the grassroots," 
Mahmoudi said. 

She also stated leadership is about 
command and control. With this process 
the non-linear groups are in control. 

Brubaker added that in Nairobi there was 
not a lot of support from the United States 
for women's programs, and she said at 
times there would only be 1,000 women 
from the NGO. She saw great elements of 
conflicts at the conference as well. 

Jolicoeur added the values concerning 
women's reproduction differ greatly 

throughout the world. 

Brubaker then returned 
to the podium. She said 
when she attended the 
conference in 1985, the 
Vatican, which had 
representation due to its 
state status, was not as 
sophisticated as it is now. 

No women or children 
were represented, she 

Mahmoudi said the 
delegates from the 
Vatican at the conference

paradigm that's emerging in the world today- 
that governments are becoming in a sense 
too distant, too big, and maybe too non- 
responsive to the real need of the people at 
the grass roots," Mahmoudi said Sept. 26 in 
the Ahmanson Science Center, part of the 
Brown Bag series. She said that governments 
are often unable to accomplish the goals 
they set 

Mahmoudi said that the media was unfair 
in its depiction of the conference. "It was 
overly negative about issues, including 
women's rights issues," she said. 

The three objectives at the NGO forum 
were agenda setting, networking and 
influencing the Platform for Action(a 
document that the government forum comes 
out with stating that the United Nations 
need to make sure its countries move for the 
advancement of women). 

Every presentation given at the forum 
would be centered around one of the 
following twelve themes; economics, 
environment, peace and human security, 
human and legal rights, government and 
politics, education, health, arts and culture, 
science and technology, spirituality and 
religion, race and ethnicity and media. 

"There was no social issue that you 
couldn't become educated aboutat the NGO 
forum," Mahmoudi said. 

Mahmoudi feels that Non-Governmental 
Organizations are emerging in the world 
today, as action-oriented groups which get 
things done. "No one expected them to 
become such a strong entity," she said. 

"Women are not considered on par with 
men when itcomes to human rights issues," 
Mahmoudi said, "and there ' s a pattern where 
women and NGO's are making a

she is able to give students her own 
perspective of the program. 

The addition of a peer adviser is not 
going to change the quality of advising 
students receive. "Students will continue 
to receive sound advice," insists Knutson 
says. Instead, it is making it easier for 
students to receive answers to questions on 
a more timely basis, therefore, preventing 
mistakes in course scheduling. 

Students considering liberal arts as a 
major, or have questions regarding your 
own progress should stop by the Benson 
House on Faculty Street and speak with 
one of the academic advisers. 


In reference to the Sept. 20 edition of 
the ECHO , Dr. Paul Egertson is the Bishop 
of the Southern California West Synod of 
Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. 

In the story on Kathryn Swanson in 
the Sept. 27 edition of the ECHO, the 
final paragraph should have read: 

Swanson says, "I'm into this 
(movement) so strongly for the sake of 
my grandsons and granddaughters, so 
they have a chance to develop as human 
beings despite their gender." 



The Echo asks for a 
response from its readers 

Once upon a time there was a small 
university newspapercalled77ie£c/K?. It did 
its best to appeal to its readers, and it was 
usually successful. 

Sometimes, however, it was not. In the 
beginning, its readers would let it know with 
friendly letters, both by e-mail and snail 
mail, when it wasn't up to par. 

The Echo was very happy when it got 
letters from its readers, either good or bad. 
The Echo knew how important its readers 
were, and was always willing to print what 
they wrote. 

But after awhile, the flow of letters slowed 
down. The small little university newspaper 
heard from its readers less and less. This 
made The Echo very sad. It missed the 
correspodence of its followers. 

Soon the letters stopped almost completely. 
The Echo became very depressed and started 
producing questionable work. 

Eventually, the poor little Echo didn ' t even 
know if anyone read it anymore. 

Then, one day, a letter came in for The 
Echo over its friend, the FAX machine. This 
made the little paper very happy, even though 
it wasn'j a friendly letter. 

At last! Someone was reading the paper 
again. The Echo thought this might be the 
dawning of a new era between paper and 

But alas, the lone letter was just that ... 
alone. None of its other brother or sister 
letters had followed it to The Echo. 

Weeks went by, but still the little paper 
heard nothing from its readers. 

The Echo became desperate. It became 
frantic! It became exasperated! What was it 
to do? 

If no one read it (which is what the little 
paper assumed since no one was writing to it 
anymore), it would not be able to be published 

The Echo began to have nightmares about 
being tossed out and discarded, used for 
nothing better than the lining of a bird's 

The little paper had one last chance. It sent 
a letter to itself, asking its once faithful 
readers to respond to it once again. It begged. 
It pleaded. It asked them to respond to 
anything they saw that might interest them. 

It asked them to voice their opinion.

I sure hope so. Well, regardless, I believe that it is my

PC language and 
the question of what 
to call ourselves 


Editor in Chief 

I have always been interested in the way words 
portray meaning and how certain words possess a lot 
of power over their user and those they are directed at. 

With the recent surge in the PC (politically correct) 
movement people have become more and more 
confused with what to call each other and what to say 
without offending anyone. I consider myself one of 
these confused people. 

I do agree in the move towards inclusive language, 
like changing "chairman" to "chairperson." These 
changes not only benefit the women who were formally 
excluded with words ending in "man," but they also 
serve to include men. 

Take the word "stewardess," for example. It does 
have its male equivalent in "steward," but because of 
the gender implied by the word "stewardess" this job 
is often thought of as a woman's job. This excluded

the men employed in this field. With the change to the 
Li Ue "flight attendant" the word is non-gender specific. 

As a woman I do not necessarily take offense at 
people who continue to say "chairman" or 
"policeman." I understand that times are changing, 
and many people have not yet adjusted to this new 
way of speaking. 

Most people in daily conversation and writing do 
not say un-PC things to offend others. Whenever I 
find myself slip and say the wrong thing, it is usually 
an accident and not meant to be harmful in any way. 

For our society to move toward a completely 
inclusive language, we must first conquer our own 
apprehensions and misunderstandings about others. 

The Echo encourages personal and 
intellectual discusson on public issues, 
and welcomes letters to the editor from 
CLU students, faculty and staff and 
administration reflecting opinions on 
issues of interest to the university 
community. The Echo staff reserves 
the right to edit letters without changing 
their meaning. Letters should be typed. 
Priority will be given to first-time letter 
writer where space is a concern.

Help Your Heart 

Providing a 
Healthy Benefit 

Many U.S. companies arc joining 
wilh ihe American Heart Association 
to provide an important benefit lo 
their employees: a program that 
encourages and helps workers 
to live longer and healthier. 

The AHA has ottered the 
program — aptly called 
Heart At Work — for 
companies large and 
small since 1985. The 
program is being 
conducted at nearly 
11.000 facilities, 
involving more than 6 
million employees. 

The AHA points out 
that Heart At Work may help a 
company contain health-care costs, 
reduce absenteeism and turnover, and 
improve employee productivity and 
morale. While focusing primarily on 
reducing heart disease and stroke, the 
program spotlights good nutrition, the 
importance of not smoking, being 
more active, knowing the warning 
signs for heart attack and stroke, and 
managing stress. 

Curbing health-care costs is no 
minor consideration lor most compa- 
nies. The AHA estimates that 
cardiovascular diseases, America's 
leading killer, will cost the nation 
about $138 billion in 1995. That 
includes $20.2 billion lor lost output 
due to disability. 

©1995, American Heart Association 

AHA volunteer leaders say that 
Heart At Work's turnkey activity kit 
approach helps people make lifestyle 
changes that can lower their long-term 
risk of heart disease and stroke. Each 
kit contains "ready-to-go" activities 
with step-by-step instructions. Seven 
kits currently available are: 

• Living the Active Life moti- 
vates and teaches employees 
how to fit moderate physical 

activity into their lives. 

• Is Your Number Up? 

encourages employees to 

know their blood pressure 

and how to control it. 

• Let's Clear the Air 

employees and their 
families to enjoy a 
smoke-free life. 

Sound Bites promotes 
healthier eating habits 
that help to reduce the 
risk of heart disease. 

• Check to Detect provides a 
simple-to-use-tool to help 
employees assess their risk of 
heart attack. 

• Clues, Cues & What To Do's 

identifies employees at risk and 
teaches them about the warning 
signs of heart attack and stroke. 

• Common Sense About Feeling 
Tense helps employees learn 
how to better manage stress at 
work and at home.

Unfortunately, many of those students

Three new professors bring different 
perspectives to Cal Lutheran's art department 

Art Editor 

Over the summer, the art department hired 
three new professors in the areas of computer 
graphics, sculpture and printmaking. 

They all have interesting backgrounds 
that will enable them to offer a new 
perspective to the art department. 

The new computer graphics professor is 
Barbara Obermeier. She is an alumna from 
CLU with a master's in business 

After spending time in the business world, 
"I needed an outlet for creativity and that 
was computer graphics," Obermeier says. 

She teaches at UCSB and at Ventura 
College. Her main goal is "to prepare 
students for the real world and show students 
the practical application of art," Obermeier 

She plans to teach Quark, Adobe 
Photoshop and Illustrator. 

Already in her class, students are 
designing ads and invitations for the Black 
and White Ball in San Francisco. This 
enables students to learn the process 
involved in creating media publications. 

The sculpture professor is Eduardo Lazo. 
He came to this university because it was a 
small school and it needed a sculpture 
professor. It was also close to home. 

"I knew people on the faculty and 
everyone was nice," Lazo says. 

He is primarily a ceramic sculptor, but 
also works with wood, concrete, metal, 
plaster, and some stone. 

He recently received his master's of fine 
arts (MFA) at Cal State Los Angeles. 

He originally majored in music and 
science, where he continued on to get his 
Ph.D. in podiatry. 

Lazo says he became a sculptor because 
"I just love sculpting." 

He believes that by bringing 
contemporary art to CLU, he will be able to 
nil the void missing because of the emphasis 

in the 

"I come 
from a

adding. "I

students to

standard rather than lowering the standard 
to meet the students. This way the students 
have something to judge themselves by." 

Lazo hopes his presence on campus will 
create more of an interest in sculpture. He is 
planning to develop a sculpture garden. 

"Giving birth to the pieces in the sculpture 
yard (will be) a collaborative (effort 
between) students and the professor," Lazo 

Anne Marie Karlsen is the new blood in 
printmaking. Before she came here, Karlsen 
had been teaching at UCLA , but they 
closed their printmaking department. 

She was attracted to CLU because it " 
was a more humanistic workplace."

bachelors of

Karlsen later received her MFA in 
printmaking from the University of 
Wisconsin at Madison. 

She says that when she attended there it 
had the reputation of being one of the best 
schools for printmaking in the country. It 
had a printmaking department made up of 
seven professors. 

She has a background in drawing and 
painting and in the last 12 years she has 
combined that with her collages. 

To create her own art, Karlsen works 
from appropriated photo-material, 
photographic images that a person did not

art books magazines, news papers, and other 
similar sources. 

With these materials she creates different 

"In printmaking, one can use their own 
art work to make unique prints," Karlsen 
says. This allows her to use photographic 
reproductions in her work. 

In her Artist Statement, Karlsen says, 
"Art making is a process of organizing and 
reorganizing the myriad perceptions we are 
flooded with in our conscious and 
unconscious lives. In much the same way as 
religion or philosophy intends to make sense 
out of the world, creation of visual images 
serves a similar purpose. 

"A collage of images is lit bits and scraps 
of memory, observation, feeling, and 
sensation reassembled to resonate in a new 

'The work may evoke a sense of knowing , 
without presenting immediate recognizable 
objects. It provides a gateway to individual 
associations, exploration and meanings." 

Recently Karlsen received a "Scholar in 
Residence Grant" from the Borchard 

This grant enables faculty members from 
a Southern California university or college 
to spend January through J une at the Chateau 
de la Bretesche in Brittany, France. 

During this time, grant recipients have 
the opportunity to further their research in 
their particular discipline. 

Karlsen saw an advertisement for the 
scholarship at UCLA and decided to apply. 

This is her first sabbatical since she started 
teaching in 1979. 

Karlsen is active in the Los Angeles art 
community and hopes to provide students 
with the insight to the contemporary art 
world through trips to the art museums and 
her enthusiasm for art in itself. 

She believes that art comes from the 
heart "It is the key to understanding the 
world that we are living in," Karlsen adds. 

'Maltese Falcon' kicks off weekly cinema event 

Haberman presents this week's feature, The Searchers' 


Staff Writer 

A showing of The Maltese Falcon on Friday night kicked off "Celebrating the 
Centennial of Movies: 1895-1995" lecture and film series 
to be held on a weekly basis. 

The series features the favorite movies of several faculty 
members, who present introductory lectures and then lead 
a discussion following the showing of the films. 

Dr. Herbert Gooch, political science professor, discussed 
the importance of film in our nation's history, saying it is the 
"quintessential American arlform." 

Preceding the showing of The Maltese Falcon Gooch 
discussed some of the background and themes central to the 

This movie "redefined the genre known as the detective 
film," he said. 

The Maltese Falcon stars the classic actors Humphrey 
Bogart, Mary Astor and Sydney Greenstreet, and was the 
first movie directed by John Houston. 

Houston's background was not originally in film, but in graphic art, Gooch said. The 

result of this background is a keen focus on detail. 

"It is the attention to detail that in many ways, I think, makes this a great mpvie," the 
professor said. 
The film looks at the nature of deception as prevalent in the professional world. 
"What you see is the dark side to American business," Gooch said. 

Bogart' s character, Sam Spade, can be viewed as the 
classic American hero, Gooch said. Spade displays such 
characteristics as self-reliance and professionalism that Gooch 
called the "key to his excellence." 

However, he went on to argue that even as he worked to 
maintain his professional ethics Spade necessarily engaged 
in deception. 

In the world of The Maltese Falcon, Gooch said, "Success 
depends on an ability to lie effectively." 

Gooch called the classic film a "perverse look at a 
quizzative, ruthless society." 

The film was nominated for an Academy Award in 1941 
and was successful despite the fact that it had the lowest 
advertising budget for movies produced that year. 
The film series will continue Friday with Dr. Mel Haberman's presentation of The 

New Friday

Opening our ears to the 
many voices of diversity 

Schwartz says Christians need 
to listen to the cries of the world 


Staff Writer 

Opening our ears to the many sounds of 
this world and beyond was Dr. Sigmar 
Schwarz's message in chapel last 

The English professor 
encouraged Christians to 
learn how to listen with 
greater sensitivity to the 
diverse people in the 

"We all have places 
where we are deaf. We 
have the illusion of 
hearing when we actually 
hear nothing," Schwartz 

The professor opened 
his remarks by paying 
tribute to a minister who 
had established a Lutheran 
mission for the deaf 
(Ephphatha) in South Dakota where 
Schwartz attended Augustana College. 

He learned from Pastor Sterling 
Simonson, "how to hear the grass 
grow,.. .how to be a better listener." 

Ephphatha means to "be opened," and 
Dr. Sch warz suggested four areas where, in 
his eyes, Christians might be more open and 
risk becoming less comfortable. 

The first is to be open to the essential 
equality of world religions even as we honor 
our own traditions. 

Second, people should be open to all 
forms of human suffering and taking on the 
commitment of helpers because all human 

beings are after all interconnected. 

Schwartz quoted John Donne's well 
known lines, "No man is an island, ... each 
man's death diminishes me." 

The third area he suggested Christians 
need to take more risks in being open to 
fight all forms of ignorance 
and prejudice. 

Growing up in the Civil 
Rights era, Professor 
Schwarz said he felt 
compelled to ask and 
answer, "How loud does a 
Martin Luther King Jr. or a 
Caeser Chavez have to 
'sound' to be heard today. 
'How many ears must one 
man have before he can 
hear people cry.' More 
than ever the answer to 
such questions seems to be 
'blowing in the wind.'" 

Finally, the professorsaid 
Christians need to be open 
to the mystery of God and Creation. 

Schwarz then reminded the congregation 
that the season of the Jewish New Year, 
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, are a 
wonderful example of the awe and reflection 
that a sincere spiritual journey should 
include and inspire. 

"If we elect to share in this holy season of 
reflection (the Jewish New Year) we shall 
find that our own traditions are heard new 
and deepened. In this way the stuff of 
miracles is born, hope returns; that which is 
loving and healing and sacred enters our 

He concluded his remarks by wishing 
everybody a Happy New Year. 

Campus Ministry retreat 
provides opportunity for 
building community 


Contributing Writer 

The fall Lord of Life retreat, was held on 
Sept. 29-30. 

A group of 24 people gathered at the 
Chapel parking lot on Friday at 5 p.m. and 
left to go to Rancho del Rey in Ojai , a teepee 

This particular retreat was a 24 hour 
excursion meant to give everyone an 
opportunity to relax and enjoy the 
campground, the beach and each others' 

Friday night, after eating dinner at the 
campground, the group came together at 
the campfire to sing in worship and 

On Saturday afternoon, the group 
participated in a community game in which 
the group was divided into four different 

sized sections. 

The point of the game was to have each 
group try to build their own little community 
with the money provided to them. 

The key idea to the game was the concept 
that these four different groups were 
separated and discriminated against at 
various levels. 

The theme throughout the activity was 
trying to see the various levels in which our 
society can and still does discriminate and 
its effects on the community and ourselves. 

After the activity was over, the group had 
lunch and then left the campground to head 
for the beach for some relaxation in the sun. 

The retreat was a wonderful getaway 
from stress built up from the begining of the 

The next Campus Ministry retreat will be 
held sometime in the spring semester 
and w ill be open to anyone wishing to attend.

Teacher from China uses CLU as a resource 


Staff Writer 

Imagine living hundreds of miles away 
from home in a foreign land, learning a 
language and culture completely different 
from your own. 

Xiao Ling Wang did just that when she 
came to CLU this year. 

Wang is from Cxian, "a big old city in the 
center of China." Her U.S. visit was 
sponsored by the United Board for Christian 
Higher Education. 

According to Wang, it is an organization 
that sends scholars from developing Asian 
countries to U.S. colleges. 

"They sent me money to come to CLU," 
she said. 

Wang is studying at the university to 

improve her English and further her

returns home. 

Wang also plans to apply what she learned 
at CLU to her classes in China to better the 
education process there. 

She has already noticed some distinct 
differences between American and Chinese 

Wang said one of the main differences is 
the variety of courses offered by the colleges. 

She said that in the United States, there 
are more choices for students. 

"In China, they don't have as many 
different courses," Wang added. 

She also noted that U.S. schools have 
more diverse classes for each major. 

"In China, you can have 20 different 
majors but they all have the same courses," 
Wang said. 

One thing she likes best about U.S. 
schools, and CLU in particular, is the open 
interaction between students and teachers. 

"In China, the teachers do all the speaking 
and the students just listen," Wang said. 

"There are more discussions between 
students and teachers here, and they learn 
from each other," she continued. 

Wang hopes that Chinese educators will 
adopt some American teaching methods 
that she learned at CLU. 

"I think China is slowly learning from 

America," she said. 

"Now, they have some schools that offer 
more [course] choices," Wang added. 

At CLU, she is taking five classes. They 
range from ESL to communication arts 

Although academic classes are a major 
priority for her, she also plans to get involved 
in some campus activities. 

"I'm interested in the Brown Bag meetings 
and joining some clubs," she said. 

Living abroad is a challenge for Wang. 
She has left her family and all things familiar 
to her behind. 

Although she misses home, she said she 
feels fortunate to be studying at CLU. 

"The campus and people are very nice. 
The academic quality and teaching are also 
very good," Wang said.

R e g a 1 s 
in league 

Two conference 
games this week 

Sports Editor 

The CLU Regals soccer team bounced 
back from their first loss of the season last 
Sunday, to win two tough games this week 
and improve their record to 9-1-1, with a 
perfect 5-0 record in the SCIAC. 

A league victory over a tough Occidental 
team on Wednesday by the score of 2- 1 kept 
the Regals perfect almost halfway through 
the league schedule. 

On Saturday, the Regals shutout UC Santa 
Cruz behind a great effort by senior forward 
Jill Gallegos and her three goals. 

Goalkeeper Amy Walz was also 
impressive, recording her sixth shutout, but 
the real story may have been defenders such 
as Mary Vincent, Lara Philby, and Emily 
Kanney, who only allowed two shots on 
goal by the Banana Slug offense. 

Other stars included Kim Holeman and 
Dean n a Luque, who each recorded one goal 
and one assist. 

Next for the seventh rated team in Division 
III, two league games lie ahead in this next 

Today at 4 p.m., the Regals travel to 
Claremont to face Claremont - Mudd - 
Scripps, to finish the first half of their league

Saturday, the University of Redlands 
makes their trip to the CLU campus to face 
the Regals at 1 1 a.m. at the North Field. 

Earlier in the season, CLU defeated the 
Redlands team by a score of 4-0. 

Kingsmen take two 
games in SCIAG play 

League game today against 
Claremont - Mudd - Scripps 


News Editor 

The Kingsmen stormed through their first 
three league games outscoring their SCIAC 
opponents 23-3 in route to a 3-0 league 

The two wins this week gave the 
Kingsmen a 5-4- 1 record overall this season 
with only five games left. 

They battle Claremont at home today at 4 
p.m. and are at Redlands on Saturday at 1 1 

Against Occidental on Sept. 27, the 
Kingsmen pulled away early and cruised to 
a 9-0 win. Brian Collins struck for three 
goals and Jan Hammervold added two. 

"We justplayed areally good game today, 

we played as a team and we seem to be 
improving," said junior forward 

On Saturday at Cal Tech, the Kingsmen 
actually fell behind in the first five minutes 
by one goal. 

However, they came back strong with 1 1 
straight goals and defeated Cal Tech going 

"The game came out about the way we 
expected," said Hammervold afterward. 

With four games remaining in league, the 
Kingsmen have put themselves in good 
position for a SCIAC title, however, the 
competition will be tougher. 

The SCIAC playoff tournament begins 
Saturday, October 21, and the Kingsmen 
hope to put themselves in good shape for 
this in the upcoming games.

Staff Writer 

The Dance Team, a talented and 
intelligent groupof young women, are ready 
for their 1995-96 year of performances. 

Two rehearsals were held for them to 
learn the dance routine. 

They had to make- up a dance routine 
that lasted between thirty seconds to a 

On Sept. 24 the tryouls for the dance 
team began with ten-plus contestants. 

Nine individuals were chosen but seven 
were able to take on the obligation. 

"All of the contestants had previous 
dance experience and are fabulous dancers, 
said Heidi Person, junior, a dance member 
for the past two years. 

The dance team is an organized group 
of individuals that show their school spirit 
in dance. 

" I love to dance and would like to do it 
as a career, but if not I will be a teacher," 
Person said. 

Dance team members wear no formal 
uniform, "We enjoy dressing and dancing 
to the theme of the song," she said. 

The dance team will perform at the 
homecoming football game and perhaps 
one other game. 

"We are also planning to perform at 
some of the girls basketball home games, 
but we will perform at every boys home 
game," Person said. 

They will have fund-raisers such as car 
washes, dancing lessons and many others. 
This will help pay for a couple of 
choreographers to come in and teach them 
dance routines. 

'The remainder of the dances will be 
made by us," Person said.

Football can't gain 
first victory; ties APU 

First league game Saturday 

Sports Editor 

The CLU Kingsmen football team 
continued to struggle through the start of 
the season this weekend when they stumbled 
to a 14-14 tie with Azusa Pacific. 

With their three nonconference games 
behind them, the Kingsmen have a 
disappointing record of 0-2-1, however, 
their season can still be a success with 
strong play in the SCIAC. 

The team opens conference play this 
Saturday at 7 p.m. at Occidental College in 

This past Saturday, after playing to a 7-7 
tie in the first half, the Kingsmen scored 
first in the second half to take a lead by a 

However, the Cougars came back to tie 
the game at 14 with 13:45 left in the game. 

From there, however, both teams missed 

The Kingsmen failed to move the ball on 
a drive that started at the Azusa Pacific 34- 
yard line, and Azusa kicker Chris Campbell 
missed a 38-yard field goal attempt to win 
the game in the final seconds. 

The game was dominated by the Azusa 
Pacific running attack as taiback Marcus 
Slaien carried the ball 32 times for a total of 
234 yards. 

'Their running game just ran over us," 
said senior defensive end Matt Johnson. 

Johnson added, "We simply have to play 

On offense for the Kingsmen, quarterback 
Ryan Huisenga completed 24 out of 4 1 passes 
for 257 yards. 

However, his troubles with interceptions 
continued this week after a tremendous 
performance last week against the University 
of San Diego; this week he threw two costly 

Senior wide receiver Billy Parra continued 
his tremendous season by adding 9 catches 
and 92 yards to his already impressive stats. 

Parra is the leading receiver in the SCIAC 
with season stats totalling 30 catches for 266 

However, despite these stats for the 
offensive players, the offense is still having 
trouble scoring points, and the offensive 
problems must be addressed if the Kingsmen 
are to be successful in SCIAC play.

A.D. position 
given vote 

Enrollment increases 


Staff Writer 

The position of athletic director will now 
be allowed a faculty vote and are encouraged 
to attend faculty meetings as a result of a 
faculty vote at its Monday meeting. 

The proposal was made because CLU 
was out of line with what is done at other 
Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic 
Conference schools. 

"Last year every school in SCI AC had an 
A.D. that was a voting member of faculty 
except us." said Dr. Leonard Smith, history 
professor and former university 
representative to SCIAC. 

The move was also made to bring athletics 
and faculty closer together. 

"It is very important that the A.D. be a 
part of faculty," Smith said. 

The other difference between CLU and 
SCIAC concerns coaching contracts. 

"They all have long term contracts," said 
Dr. Bob Doering, former athletic director. 
The faculty also discussed enrollment 
this fall at CLU. Although exact figures are 
unknown becauseofthechange of computer 
software during the summer, the numbers 
have increased. 

"It appears at this point we are a bit ahead 
on freshman enrollment," said Dr. Luther 
Leudtke, university president. 

Also, campus housing has increased this 

"It is very close to capacity," said Dennis 
Johnson, vice president for enrollment and 
student life. 

However, not all parts of enrollment have 

"We have seen a decline of our ADEP 
students," said Luedtke, adding, "we have 
also seen a reduction of graduate students." 
Regarding the strategic planning, Luedtke 
said, "We are moving toward the latter 
stages of doing the strategic planning." 

The faculty also discussed the feasibility 
of students getting through core classes in 
four years. 

In a study of 50 other schools, CLU was 
eight to 1 2 units more than other schools as 
far as being a best case scenario. 

"The study revealed that, for students in 
high unit majors, it is hard to get through in 
four years," said Dr. Kristine Butcher, 
chemistry professor. 

Furthermore, 60 percent of the 1994 
graduate class were in high unit majors, she 
said, adding, "We need to find creative 
sources for fixing this." 

The next faculty meeting will be October 

Lu-Down '95 a hit

Night full of dancing, 

music, animals and fun 

More than 350 enjoy festivities 


Staff Writer 

Lu-Down offered something for 
everyone of all ages, from students to 
graduates to faculty and the community. 

Ed and Sally taught line dancing and 
basic two step from 8 to 9 and then 
switched off and on through therestof the 
night with the Rhythm Rangers. 

"1 don't really like country music but 
they made it a lot of fun," said Kevin 
Wade, junior. 

The Petting Zoo was a big hit. 

"I loved the little animals, especially 
the pig," Caty Heyn, graduate student, 

Clubs and hall councils set up booths to 
fundraise and promote themselves. 

Jason Goldsmith, sophomore, could be 
heard yelling, "Get your cowboy special 
here, a straw hat filed with popcorn and a 
soda for only three dollars, get your 
cowboy special, come and get it," all in an 
effort to make money for the New West 
Hall Council. 

The Hawaiian Club had a sneeze-fest, 
for one dollar you could try your luck at 
guessing how many times freshmen 
Kristian Peterson, aka Sneezer, would 
sneeze. The grand total came to a 

whooping 35! 

"Achoo, achoo, achoo, achoo, achoo, 
achoo, .... achoo, achoo, achoo, achoo, 
achoo, achoo," Sneezer said. 

The Hawaiian Club also sponsored a 
jail , for one dollar you could have someone 
thrown in jail, then they could spend 
another dollar to get out or wait five 
minutes. They also sold candy leis. 

Women's Crew set up a Polaroid photo 
booth, selling pictures for two dollars. 

Organizations donated around 60 items 
for a drawing. For two dollars you could 
purchase a ticket that was a guaranteed 
winner. The prizes ranged from Subway 
sandwiches toT-ShirtsandCDs to videos 
to autographed photos, plus many others. 

Some of the donators included Hilltop 
Feed and Ranch Store, The CD Trader, 
Borderline, Subway, Mrs. Gooches, Free 
Your Imagination, and K-HAY. Malt 
Michaels host of K-HAY 100.7's Top 8 
at 8 and The Santa Fe Cafe were also 
there. The hay ride was a major draw. 
Rob Simpson brought and drove the truck 
all night. 

There could be heard the cries of the 
people that rode in the back of the truck 
on the bails of hay, 
' T4ceeceeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy !!!!!!!!!!!!!' '

'Morning Glory' continues 
award winning tradition

Once again, the 'Morning Glory' brought 
the All American Award to the CLU campus, 
proving excellence among all literary 
magazines. A 25-year tradition at CLU, the 
'Morning Glory' continues to be a part of 
the academic achievements students can be 
proud of . 

By surpassing universities such as 
Stanford and other prestigious institutions, 
it has become a "nationally known" literary 
magazine and the staff receives many 
requests for copies from around the nation. 

Dr. Jack Ledbetter, English professor, 
began the annual magazine in 1970 as a way 
of continuing his interest in poetry. "I've 
always been interested in poetry, it's in the 
blood," he says. Also, the magazine provides 
a tradition for CLU, "We have very few 
traditions and we need traditions to be proud 

The 'Morning Glory' is comprised of art 
and poetry created by the students and 

faculty of CLU. One of the magazine's 
greatest strengths, Ledbetter says, "Is 
matching art with literature." Some of the 
entries are chosen because of their 
compatibility with one another. 

In order to receive the All American 
Award a school must be a first class-rated 
magazine based on the content and 
presentation of the material 

CLU is able to produce a top rate magazine 
because of the numerous entries it receives 
each year. Lori Seagal, editor, and a small 
staff of students anonymousl y vote to decide 
which entries will be selected. 

After a quarter of a century of dedication 
to the 'Morning Glory' , Ledbetter has 
chosen to resign as adviser, explaining, 
"I'd probably still be advising if funding 
wasn't so difficult" 

The annual publication requires a great 
deal of work and someone willing to push 
for its existence. Ledbetter says he firmly 
believes that "it's the first and best tradition 
of CLU and I'm tired of fighting for

The Echo asks: Which 
customer is always right? 

We would now like to interrupt the fun and 
frivolity of reading The Echo with a slightly more 
serious question. 

Is the customer always right? 

And if so, which one? 

As students at a university, we would like to say, 
"Yes!" We, as the customer, should always be 

And yet, itdoesn't always seem that way does it? 

Some would even question whether the university 
even sees the students as customers anymore. 

The traditional student seems to have lost some 
of the roar in its voice. Where we once were the 
primary reason the university existed, we now 
seem to be secondary. 

The ADEP student brings in more money, and 
therefore has a stronger voice. Fair enough, we 
can understand the game of economics. 

But aren't there more traditional students than 

Don't get us wrong, we have nothing against the 
ADEP students. In fact, we value them as a very 
important part of our school and society. More 
power to anyone who wants to better themself 
through education. 

What we as traditional students question is why 
their voice is stronger than ours. 

Scuttlebutt has it that when an ADEP class 
complained about the tables and chairs being 
uncomfortable in a classroom, they were replaced 
as soon as possible. 

Yet when we ask for functional equipment on 
campus, it must go through years upon years of 
beauracratic red tape before it even gets considered. 

The school instituted a strong campaign to keep 
students on campus last year because it makes 
more money when we do. 

But it obviously isn ' t to be enough money. More 
returning students than ever seem to have asked to 
stay on campus (thus the overflow housing in Ml. 
Clef), yet they can't equip us with decent furniture 
in our rooms. 

Our beds all sag and the mattresses are all caved 
in. Our desk lights often don't work, and our 
dresser drawers often don't open smoothly. 

Our rugs are stained and the fans are overly 
noisy in the bathrooms, if they work at all. 

Many rooms on campus still don *t have bedroom 
doors, and those that do aren't guaranteed of 
closing tightly or not rattling. 

There are other minor details that we would like 
fixed, but the list is longer than this column. We 
understand that they all cost money, but we 
sometimes wonder which customer is more 

We argue that neither should be on a higher 
pedestal than the other, and yet it sometimes feel 
that one grouphas been left to stand on the shoulders 
of the other.

Of the many aspectsof my role

There are many illustrations 
on the CLU campus of 
individuals, groups and 
organizations committed to their

marked contributions to the CLU 
community on a daily basis. 

One of the many groups of 
student leaders that makes an 
impact on campus on a dai ly basis 
is the ASCLU Student

the past two years, the ASCLUG

Senior speaks of need for increased 
awareness of mental illnesses 

II is great to see all the hard word that is put into important programs like Alcohol Awareness 
Week, AIDS Awareness Week and programs devoted to date rape. As students of CLU, we are 
very fortunate to have programs like these that give us a chance to be educated about serious issues 
like these. 

However, it troubles me to see how another serious issue is once again being completely 
overlooked. It is disturbing to see how the campus organizations who work so hard putting on other 
programs, do not give the same effort to educate the CLU community about the mentally ill. 

Since 1983, the American Psychiatric Association and other mental health advocacy organizations 
have conducted educational programs and events targeted at increasing the recognition of mental 
illnesses, known as National Mental Illness Awareness week. This week of programs is held 
during the first week of October. 

Many people suffer from mental illnesses. Like all other sicknesses, debilitating physical 
conditions accompany mental illnesses. We must not forget that mentally ill people are human 
beings too and as with other sicknesses, they feel pain. 

So, my suggestion to the Residence Life staff, Campus Ministry, ASCLU, Multicultural 
Services, psychology department, and to all faculty members and students is "Who will speak if 
you don't?" Who will speak for the Schizophrenic who suffers from distorted thinking? Who will 
work for the individual who suffers from Bi-Polar illnes and the people who suffer from 
depression? Who will speak so that their voices can be heard, if you don't?

Smokers: searching Smoking: A violation 
for a haven of my right to breathe 

Contributing Writer 

I am a smoker. I like to smoke. You have seen me, or 
people like me, smoking in public, in groups, or silently by 

But my habitat is in danger. People are not caring for us 
but are making judgements and taking the few places we as 
smokers have, away. We have no shelter from the storm, we 
are cold, we are angry, our rights are being violated. 

But we do harm, some may say. Without the fly, how 
would the spider eat? We are part of the world and we need 
as much love and fostering as any other bug called the 
human race. We don't mean to harm you. We are selfish. 
Yet, we are polite. 

Don't take away our places of smoking. We become 
hostile cigarette baring maniacs that attack people who tell 
us stuff we already know. What we ask is a change in 
attitudes, on both sides, so that we can live in peace with 
each other. We yin to your yang, you yang to our yin. 

Instead of taking away places from us smokers, just don' t 
go to the places where we smoke. If this is not possible, ask 
us to smoke someplace else with a valid reason behind it. 
We will try to make your life as comfortable as our lives 
used to be. If we make a mess, we ' 11 clean it up. We will not 
smoke near children, and will be careful of smoking in 
public places. All we ask is you to be polite to us, and in 
return we will be polite right back. 

You don't have to accept us. We don't ask that of you. 
But, we are here, tolerate us. With a shared tolerance of 
each other, we can grow and have healthy relationships. If 
you see a smoker alone, say "HI", we like to talk. If as a 
smoker, you are surrounded by non smokers, ask if it is 
possible for you to smoke, if your really need it. Life is so 
much easier with compromise. 

We will not go into lengths about health risks, both sides 
know the facts. Just help smokers do what they need to do. 
Remember, it was our decisions to smoke, and yours not to 


Contributing Writer 

I think that smoking is gross. I don't have anything 
against those people who smoke, but it doesn't mean I have 
to like it. 

These days, more and more places are becoming non- 
smoker friendly. 

This issue is more prominent in California than in other 
states. On a recent trip to New Jersey I was shocked when 
they asked me whether I wanted smoking or non-smoking. 

Everyone has the choice to smoke or not to smoke. When 
you are silting outside and someone next to you lights a 
cigarette, 100% of your rights are taken away. 

Because of the harmful second hand effects of cigarette 
smoke, smokers are endangering everyone including 
children, infants and elderly. 

People who already have lung problems and other health 
disorders of that sort face an additional strain on their 
health. They must face the problems that come along with 
coughing due to smoking. 

If you don't want to smell the smoke, you have to get up 
and move. Smokers make the choice to smoke and chance 
getting lung cancer; non-smokers should not have to deal 
with this unhealthy choice. It is not their decision to inhale 
dangerous smoke. 

Non-smokers have no choice as to whether they want to 
breathe second hand smoke and chance getting lung cancer. 

If smoking is not as dangerous as some smokers claim it 
is, why does the surgeon general place warnings on every 
package of cigarettes as well as cigarette advertising? 

Smoker's habitats do not need to be destroyed. Positive 
relationships between nonsmokers and smokers need to be 
built. How would you feel if you went to a party, and all the 
nonsmokers had to stand outside in the cold, while the 
smokers laugh and drink punch and wave at you. To us 
smoker's, that is heaven. Since it will never happen, give 
us our space, and we will try to respect yours.

Cal Lutheran art professor uses recycled materials; 
offers insight into familiar and unexpected 


Contributing Writer 

Photography , drawing, painting, ceram-

sent a few of me more traditional mediums 

Larkin Higgins, art profesor, has uti- 
lized. Performance art, writing for perfor- 
mance art, and text work with collage are 
some of the styles she has branched off 

She has done many different kinds of 
an, and all are linked by a common con- 

"The link has to do with elevating the 
ordinary," Higgins said. "The way I create 
art is the concept comes first, then by what 
I need to say, I choose the medium to 
match what I want to communicate or 
what I want to question." 

"The concept always dictates the me- 
dium," she said. 

Higgins said the materials she tends to 
use are "found, non-precious, thrown away 
or recycled." 

She said she chooses these materials for 
reasons of ecology because she wants "to 
recycle things that already exist and make 
art out of them." 

Another reason for using these materi- 

als is to call attention to the familiar because, 
"when somebody's tossed something away, 
we're familiar with that outcast item," Higgins 

She created a series of pieces using old 
books. While pursuing this avenue, she said 
she "made a curious observation." 

"Most of these discarded books correlated 
to surprisingly few categories. Psychology 
texts, encyclopedias and dictionaries, eti- 
quette and charm school books, even mar- 
riage manuals," Higgins said. 

One of the books became the piece "Dy- 
namics of Interpersonal Behavior," (the same 
title as the book), which was part of an entire 

Higgins is a recipient of the Ahmanson 
Foundation Scholarship. She completed her 
second graduate degree, which was in new 
genres, in May at Otis College of Art and 

Her other master's is in creative photogra- 
phy from Cal State Fullerton. 

"I would consider myself a multi-disci- 
plinary artist who is actively exhibiting my 
artworks," Higgins said. 

She has had solo shows at UCLA, Harvard 
University, University of Wisconsin and BC 
Space (Laguna Beach), among others.

and Sioux City Art Center (Iowa). 

She said she has observed changes 
that have occurred in performance art. 

"It was seen, especially in the begin- 
ning, as sculpture," she said. 'The hu- 
man being became the medium. Now, 
when one says performance art, people 
usually think of theater." 

"I come a little bit more from the 60' s 
concept of it being a pure form without a 
whole lot of gadgets and spotlights," 
Higgins said. 'The definition of perfor- 
mance art, as I see it, is body as sculpture 
made active." 

Some of her recent creative involve- 
ments include text pieces. 

"When one uses text alone, it has a

Take chances, have fun, and enjoy life 
are the major beliefs Ian Sinks stresses in

Sinks, a 22 year old senior, is involved 
in many activities. 

He is a resident adviser in Pederson, 
Vice President of the Resident Hall 
Association, a senior senator, and the 
school mascot 

"You just have to figure out how to 
manage your time. It only gets difficult 
around finals lime," he said. 

Sink's goal after graduation this year is 
to eventually own his own home and 

"I'd like to join the Coast Guard reserves 
and maybe even do some full time so I can 
serve my duly to my country and even 
make a little extra money at the same 
time," he said. 

Sinks has nothing but good things to say 
about CLU. 

"This school is so small that usually if 
you have a problem with something you 
can find the channels to effect change and 
gel something done about it," Sinks said. 

"I've had a lot of good experiences ai 
CLU. This is a great school. I love it , 
especially working at the kindergarten and 
preschool, that's been just great," he added. 

Sinks said that what little free time he

"I like hanging out and talking with people. 
I like to hear their stories, everyone has an 
interesting story," he said. 

As for the student government, Sinks 
quickly answered that the "student 
government rocks this year." 

"Last year's government just saw a need 
for a real change and did it. Government is 
just running so smoothly this year I'm 
impressed. It's amazing," he said. 

"Have fun, work hard, and enjoy life while 
you have it," Sinks said. 

"Oh yeah, and Pederson Rocks." 

CLU's Computer

Senior finds time to research neurobiology, perform for worship services 


Staff Writer 

Derek Helton, senior, could someday be 
your doctor. As a pre-med biology student, 
Helton is already hard at work and preparing 
himself for the rigors of a medical career. 

"I've been a patient all my life and now,

Aside from five classes that keep him 
busy during the week, Helton also serves as 
a departmental assistant in the biology 

The job involves "tutoring for freshmen 
biology majors and premed advising," he 

As departmental assistant, he also acts as 
a kind of mentor for other aspiring doctors. 

When he's not working or doing 
homework, Helton is probably working on 
a scientific project. One of the projects that 
he is involved in is "neurobiology research." 

"I want to be able to identify a means to 

regulate excitable tissues or muscle 
activities," he said.

Give the Gift of 
Good Health 

Looking for that perfect gift for a 
special child on your holiday list? 
The American Heart Association 
suggests giving 
something to keep 
their heart healthy 
for a lifetime. 

Experts say it 
isn't so much the 
gifts we give to 
children that will 
help them stay 
healthy through 
adulthood. It's 
the habits and 
values that are 
instilled in them. 
That's why parents 
should introduce 
youngsters to activities that will give 
them a lifetime of fun. That list 
includes swimming, walking, bicy- 
cling, tennis, sailing and camping. 
Such activities can wean kids away 
from the television set and give them 
a love for physical activities. 

Gifts like this could include tennis 
or swimming lessons, a radio headset, 
soccer gear, a basketball, a small sail- 
boat, camping gear or a pedometer. 

Roller skates are another idea for 
children. And for older youngsters — 
particularly those who live in the 
northern United States — ice skates, 
sleds and skis are wise choices that 
encourage year-round activity.

Another suggestion is to give a 
membership in the local Y or help 
children get involved in team sports 
such as soccer, basketball, football or 

A gift parents can give kids is to 
resist the temptation to eat out at fast- 
food places all the time. Make the 
commitment to 
low-fat cooking at 
home and take your 
kids to a soup and 
salad place instead 
of a fast-food 
restaurant. Eating 
and exercise 
habits are formed 
early, so new 
parents have a good 
chance to make a 
difference in their 
children's adult 

Examples are important in other 
ways. Kids are more likely to start 
the habit of working out if a parent 
participates. An hour a day playing 
basketball one-on-one with Mom or 
Dad is something they might give up 
an hour of TV for — and it wouldn't 
do the parent any harm either. 

When considering what to buy for 
a child, a good rule of thumb for an 
ideal gift is: "If you have to sit down 
to use it, consider another choice."

your child achieve a healthy lifestyle,

Dr. Edward Chiu-Yeng Tseng, the asso- 
ciate dean for international education and 
political science professor, is very involved 
in activities concerning international stu- 
dents both on campus and abroad. 

Tseng was born in 
Nanking, China and 
speaks three Chi- 
nese dialects (Man- 
darin, Cantonese, 
and Shanghai). 

He was educated 
early in life in Hong 
Kong, Macao and 
China, and came to 
the United States in 

Tseng received 
his B.S. degree in 
government and 
economics at 
Pomona College. 

He continued his 
studies in 1955 at 
New York Univer- 
sity where he earned Dr - Edward Tseng 
his M.A. in interna- 
tional studies and a Ph.D degree in interna- 
tional law, international relations, political 
theory and East Asian studies. 

Tseng has received many scholarships, 
academic awards, and research grants, in- 
cluding two scholarships from the Stale 
Department of the United States and mem- 
berships in the National Social Science 
Honor Society and the National Political 
Science Honor Society. 

In 1955, Tseng started a career as an 
administrative assistant at the International 
House Association in New York City. 

The next year, he was selected as one of 
12 international interns for the United Na- 
tions amongst thousands of other appli- 

cants from around the world. 

He started his teaching career in 1959 
when an admiral of the United States Navy 
asked him to become an International Law 
naval instructor. Tseng has been teaching 
ever since then. 

Besides teaching, he has been associated 
with numerous other activities. Tseng is 

involved with New 
York University and 
is in charge of an 
institute for East 
Asian studies that 
has a chapter at 

Tseng also lec- 
tures extensively 
off-campus and 
helps some interna- 
tional students. 

"I am supposed 
to be helping the 
Asian students. My 
involvement can be 
better, but we have 
not been together. I 
hope this year we 
can do more things," 

Tseng said his 
busy schedule is what has kept his involve- 
ment minimal. 

"I would love to be more involved. Un- 
fortunately, over the past five or 10 years, 
my workload has increased so much, I can 
no longer find the time to do more things 
with the students," he added. 

However, Tseng has been able to orga- 
nize a student tour of Hong Kong and China. 
He and the students will be leaving on Dec. 
29 as part of an intererm trip. 

Tseng used to organize student tours to 
Asia almost every year. 

"I have not been able to do it over recent 
years, so I was quite happy when I could 
find time to organize one this year," he said 




Seegmiller calls for 
students to express 
themselves on campus 


Staff Writer 

Why not express your thoughts or feelings 
through art? 

Well, senior Susan Seegmiller is doing so 
by bringing out the lack of art on campus. 
Every Sunday night she meets with two 
CLU students to 
discuss a few 
factors about art 
and to draw 
murals for the

everyone to

has ideas for 
bringing out the 
beauty of art to Susan Seegmiller 
our campus but 

they are limited 

because of lack 
of money. 

One of those many ideas she thought 
would be successful, and at the same time 
bring in funds, was the sketching of a 
student's face. 

She explained this as a friend paying to 
have a friend's face sketched on a poster 
and then having it displayed on campus as 
a form of wishing happy birthday. 

Seegmiller says that these are all just 

ideas in mind, and that they have still not 

come into effect. 

"I think that once the art classes start 

doing more work,"she said, "that we will 

begin to see more art." 
"At mis time students are just beginning 

to demonstrate to their professors their art 

ability, but within a few more weeks we will 

begin to see 
more of iL" 
also would like 
to see a place 
for the art work 
to be dis- 
played. She 
suggested the 
library patio, 
the SUB, and 
bulletin boards 

said she 

believes that 
not having a 
place for art to 
be displayed is 

why the CLU 


does not see much of it on campus. 
Seegmiller's ideas are a beginning for 

bringing out the lack of art on campus, but 

cannot come into effect until more fundings 

are available or until more students start 

showing interest in this area. 
That is why she invites all students who 

are interested in the beauty of art to join her 

in expressing herself.

'Advantage' deeply touches 
hearts of audience 

Heather Embree as Woman trying to escape her emotions 

Photo by Lorl Wolnlck 


Staff Writer 

Emotions came to life in the Black 
Box Production of "Advantage," 
performed last Sunday and Monday. 

The production was created and 
directed by seniors Tracy Bersley and 
Patricia Marsac. 

Uniquely incorporating music and 

dance, it told the story of a woman 
wrought with the emotions that result 
from being a victim of rape. 

"It was a very tasteful way of 
addressing a very difficult subject," said 
Bethany Lewis, senior. "It was very 
moving," she added. 

Bersley and Marsac handled the 
choreography for the production, but 
they said they incorporated the ideas of 
the cast members, making it a 
collaborative effort 

The cast of characters included a man 
and a woman , played by Heather Embree 
and Jon Rogers, five personified 
emotions and people representing the 
passage of time. 

The play heavily focused on the 
expression of the emotions, creating a 
strong effect 

"It was very powerful," said Jaynette 
Stark, senior. 

Music and movement, rather than 
language, provided the medium for this 

This unique aspect of the performance 
required the audience to come to an 
understanding of the emotions portrayed 
on stage without relying upon words to 
relay meaning. 

Changes in music accompanied 

variations in emotion and tone. The 

music was performed live by five 

students, on violin, guitar, percussion, 
clarinet and piano. 

The major emotions in the play were 
Anxiety, Sadness, Anger, Guilt and 
Fear. These often surrounded the 
Woman, tearing her away from the Man. 

Following the performance, Bersley 
and Marsac placed a candle in the center 
of the stage. One by one the audience lit 
small black candles from the candle on 
stage and left the Little Theatre. 

Just outside the door stood a sign 
bearing the words, "Each flame 
represents one person in your life who 
has been or will be raped." 

Surrounding the area outside the 
theater was a clothesline from which 
hung shirts decorated by victims of rape 
and domestic violence. 

Free-will donations were collected 
for the performance, and proceeds will 
go to the Coalition Against Domestic 

"Advantage" played to a full house at 
both of the scheduled show times on 
Sunday and Monday. The cast 
performed encore shows on both nights. 

Wolnick strives for good art in library 


Staff Writer 

It is very important to have good works of 
art in the library, Lori Wolnick, senior art 
major, said. 

Ever since she took over the job of a 
recently retired staff member in the Pearson 
Library, Wolnick has found herself shuffling 
between classes and putting together art 
shows for the CLU community. 

"Since the staff member has retired, (the 
library administration) decided to create a 
position for students to do mis. Plus, you get 
some money off your tuition," she said. 

"I set up, organize, and help organize any 
and all display exhibitions that we have in 
the library. 

"And I try to keep a steady flow of works 
going to the library at all times so every time 
you go in mere, you have something new 
and different to look at," Wolnick said. 

The exhibitions and displays that students 
will see, will often coincide with the various 
events happening on campus. 

"For black history month, we will be 
spotlighting maybe a black artist, or for the 
women's history month, we'll try and 
coordinate with the Women's Center for a 
women's exhibition and so on," she said. 

Exhibltons scheduled 

For the various exhibitions planned, 
Wolnick said that she would like to include 
a variety of things. 

Students walking into the Pearson Library 
will see not only paintings but sculptures, 
textiles, prints and just about "anything else 
that will fit in there" as well. 

Each exhibition will run at least two 

"Sometimes we have short shows just to 
have something interesting and have 
different stuff going on in and out of there," 
Wolnick said. 

Students should gel as much exposure to 
different types of art and media as possible, 
she added. 

Upcoming displays in the library will 
feature not only the works of artists outside 

campus, but those of CLU students and 
faculty members as well. 

The first exhibition this semester will be 
an "introduction exhibition" showcasing 
the works of the three new faculty members 
in the art department. 

"Then one of the shows that we're going 
to have, probably in October, is a 'so far so 
good ' show by any art student who wants to 
display what they've done so far in art 
class," Wolnick said. 

With student shows, she added, there 
might be a judging criteria depending on 
how many participants they get. 

Members of the Expressionists Club or 
the Art faculty may function as judges to 
see what gets in the show. 

Ken Pflueger, director of Information 
Services stationed in the library, is also 
partly responsible for what goes on in these 

"He is a great source of help, especially 
when it comes to helping with ideas and 
helping me find what I need," Wolnick said. 

"(In terms of publicity) we are always 

keeping up to date in The Echo as well as 
putting flyers around campus and word-of- 
mouth."There will also be a board just 
outside the doors to the library telling people 
what's going on in there," she added. 

Wolnick encourages students to visit the 
exhibitions and take in the displays. 

"I think it is very important for you to see 
all these displays in the library especially if 
you are going in there to study. 

Artistic influence 

It can be very influential when you see 
some sort of artistic endeavor that 
somebody's come across or created," she 

"On one hand, there's something very 
left-brain about studying; on the other hand, 
you see something so right-brained, so 
creative and so thought provoking," 
Wolnick added. 

She acknowledged that there is no better 
place to host shows of this nature than the 

"It's perfect," she said.

Speaker discusses the 
need to be prepared 

Bilodeau reflects on mortality 

Staff Writer 

In lasi Wednesday's chape I 
service, speaker William 
Bilodeau asked, "What will it 
take for us to be prepared?" 

In his message, the geology 
professor asked the audience 
if they had been prepared for 
the 1994 Northridge 
earthquake and if they are 
prepared for future 

"Do you have your 
flashlight, water and other 
things [for an earthquake]?" 
he asked. 

Bilodeau then directed the audience's 
attention to Mark 1 3:28-37, a passage in the 
Bible which tells Christians to be prepared 
for Christ's coming. Part of the passage 
reads: "Be on guard! Be alert! You do not 
know when that lime will come" (NIV; 
Mark 13:33). 

Using this passage as a guide, Bilodeau 
pointed out that nobody knows exactly when 
Christ will return. 

"It could be in 2000 or it could be 
tomorrow," he said. 

He also explained that the authors who 
wrote Mark were undergoing a lime of 
religious persecution. Many followers had 
predicted Christ's return in their lifetime, 
but weredisappointed when itdidn'thappen. 
Christians, however, should always be

prepared to face God. 

"We could die tomorrow," Bilodeau said. 

He then talked about his young niece who 
was killed in a car accident just before she 
was about to start college. The tragedy 
forced him lo deal with death and his own 
mortality. Bilodeau said we should all be 
prepared spiritually because we can die at 
any age. 

"Death can come at any time," he said. 

Bilodeau encouraged the audience to live 
a spiritually meaningful life. He said that 
we shouldn't take our life for granted, and 
that we should be prepared to face God. 

In closing, Bilodeau offered a self- 
reflective question, say ing, "Have I prepared 
for meeting God? I'd like to think so," he

Focus on local area 
worship opportunities 

Catholic church provides 
alternative to CLU services 

Staff Writer 

Seeking worship opportunities 
outsideof CLU, many students regularly 
attend services at St. Paschal Baylon, 
Thousand Oak's only Catholic church. 

St. Paschal Baylon located at 155 E. 
Janss Road, across from Vons on 
Moorpark, is close by for many students. 
The church, which is within walking 
distance from CLU, is convient for 
Catholics who want to go to a traditional 
church without having to go so far 

single people, everything," said Alicia 
Bel man, sophomore. 

"We try to do a lot for everybody at 
St. Paschal, especially the youth. On 
Sundays we have a youth mass at 5:30 
p.m. We try to have something after 
the mass, such as a pizza party, to keep 
the youth involved," Lannoy said. 

"We will have more events in the 
future to help build up young adults. 
We are trying to get something worked 
out to have masses every once in a 
while at CLU. We want to be very 
much involved in the community," he 

'I was raised Catholic; it's my 

family tradition... It would be 

hard for me to go somewhere 

else, even once.' 

Esther Torres, senior 

"I don't have a car, so I'm glad it's 
close by, it's a 35 minute walk but a 
good workout. Other Catholic churches 
take much longer to get to," said Irene 
Torres, sophomore. 

Rev. Sean de Lannoy of St. Paschal 
Baylon said, "Proximity is a big reason 
why Catholics come to our church, it's 
the closest Catholic church in the area." 

Students feel mere is a friendly 
atmosphere and a general openness to 
all religions here at CLU, but going to 
chapel on campus just is not something 
they want to do. 

Esther Torres, senior, said, "I was 
raised Catholic; it's my family tradition. 
Plus, I'm unfamiliar with other 
religions. It would be hard for me to go 
somewhere else, even once." 

Some students find it hard to stray 
from traditions and attend the church 
services here at CLU. 

"I've never been to a Sunday Service 
at CLU. Last year I went to two or three 
services on Wednesday, but this year I 
haven't, I prefer to go to St. Paschal," 
Irene Torres, said. 

Students cited the friendliness and 
different service opportunites at St. 
Paschal Baylon. 

"Everybody is so friendly there, 
including the priests, which makes it 
nice. They have services throughout 
the week and different services for 
youth, older people, married people. 

CLU is trying to get feedback from 
our Catholic students to see if they 
would like to have a mass once a month , 
said Mark Knutson, campus pastor. 

Spanish speaking students like the 
fact that St Paschal Baylon offers a 
Spanish service on Sundays. 

"They're all American priests, but 
they speak Spanish very well," Irene 
Torres said. 

"It's easier to understand Spanish 
since that's my first language, and the 
services are not the same. The style is 
different," Belman said. 

All three said they try to go every 
Sunday but do not always make it 
because of all the pressures in their 

"I would like to go to Sl Paschal's 
during the week too, but with classes 
it's too hard. Thai's one reason I don't 
go here at CLU on Wednesdays," Irene 
Torres said. 

Sl Paschal Baylon has many services 
throughout the week. On Sunday there 
are services at 6:55, 8:00, 9:15, 10:45 
a.m., 12: 1 5 (Spanish), and 5:30 p.m. 
Monday through Friday services are at 
6:30 and 8:15 a.m. On Saturday there 
is one service at 8: 15 a.m.

Kingsmen soccer takes 
control in SCI AC race 

SCIAC Tournament still remains 


Sports Editor 

The Kingsmen soccer team took a great 
step forward towards winning the SCIAC 
this week with two conference victories 
over Claremont - Mudd - Scripps and 

With three games left in the season and 
only two league games left, CLU holds a 
one game lead in the SCIAC overClaremont 
with a 5-0 record in league and a 7-5-1 
record overall. 

*The win overClaremont was really big," 
said junior Frode Davanger. 

Claremont had been the team to win the 
SCIAC the last few years. 

The game Wednesday against Claremont 
was highlighted by a spectacular goal by 
junior defenseman Ryan Dobbins and a 

second half game-winning goal by Aluede 

Okokhere, the leading goal scorer for the 
Kingsmen, also had a goal on Saturday 
against Redlands and sophomore Brian 
Collins added a goal. 

Upcoming games for the Kingsmen 
include todays away game with La Verne 
and Saturday's SCIAC season finale with 

The SCIAC Playoff Tournament begins 
October 21, and the Kingsmen will once 
again have to prove themselves against 
league opponents. 

"Although we just beat Claremont, 
chances are, if everything goes to form, we 
could meet them again in the finals of the 
tournament," said Davanger. 

"However, we're confident we can 
continue to play well," added Davanger.

Regals stay perfect in 
SCIAC with two wins 

Teamwork remains key to success 


Sports Editor 

Regals soccer continued their dom inaiion 
in SCIAC play by adding two league 
victoires this past week. 

They improved their record in the SCIAC 
to a perfect 7-0, while their overall record 
was improved to 1 1-2-1 heading into their 
final weeks. 

"We're playing very well heading into 
the final weeks of the season," said junior 
defender Mary Vincent. 

Their upcoming games include two 
matches this week against SCIAC opponents 
La Veme today at the North Field and 
Saturday at Pomona-Pitzer. 

This past week, the Regals defeated 
Claremont - Mudd - Scripps 4- 1 and shutout 
Redlands 6-0 this past weekend. 

Six different players scored against 

Redlands: Kim Holeman, Jill GaJlegos, Lara 
Philby, Jill Simmer, Holly Roepke, and 
Kristin Taylor. 

This simply points to the attitude among 
the Regals of teamwork. 

"We've really had alot of people make 
big contributions to the team all along this 
year," said Vincent 

However, some of the Regals have stood 
out on the team. 

Gallegos, a senior forward, continues to 
lead the team in goals (15) and assists (5). 

Also, senior goalkeeper Amy Walz has 
been impressive recording her sixth shutout 
of the season against Redlands. 

The season ends October 28, but the team 
hopes to be playing well beyond that. 

Their impressive record should carry 
enough weight to earn them a place in the 
Division III Playoffs, and the Regals are 
confident about their chances.

Kingsmen football 
captures first victory 

Back to back home games next 


Sports Editor 

The Kingsmen football team earned its 
first victory of the season this past weekend 
in their SCI AC opener at Occidental, 21- 

They host Claremont this Saturday at 1 
p.m. in another SCIAC battle. 

At Occidental, the Kingsmen dominated 
the first three quarters, leading 14-0 going 
into the fourth. 

The star of the game wasclearly freshman 
tailback Fredrik Nanhed who ran for 164 
yards on 21 carries, including a 72-yard 
touchdown gallop at the start of the fourth 
quarter to increase the CLU lead to 21-0. 

However, the fourth quarter was, as coach 
Joe Harper said, " shaky." 

The Tigers made the Kingsmen earn this 
victory, coming back with two touchdowns 
in the last quarter. 

However, the Kingsmen held on to win, 
thanks in part to one of Chad Valousky's 
three interceptions, and improved their 
record to 1 -2- 1 , with a perfect 1 -0 record in 
the SCIAC. 

"It was good enough to come out with a 
win," said Harper of his team 's performance, 
"but there is definitely room for 


"We are making progress though," he 
said, adding that the team should be able to 
continue to improve. 

Other players who stood out for the 
Kingsmen against Occidental were four 
seniors: fullback Ivan Moreno, defensive 
tackle Tyler Blackmore, defensive end Jeff 
Cahill, and comerback Valousky. 

Looking ahead lo Saturday's game againsi 
Claremont, Harper sees a big challenge for 
his team. 

"Claremont is a team that has a very 
potent offense," said Harper. 

"They throw the ball very well ," he added, 
"and they have given us fits the last couple 
of years." 

This weekend figures to be a big chal lenge 
for the Kingsmen defense, and the game 
may hinge on the success of the Kingsmen 
at stopping the Claremont passing attack. 

However, the Kingsmen have a very 
strong defense. 

The defensive line is clearly a strength of 
the team, and the defensive backs have also 
played well recently, as evidenced by 
Valousky 's three interceptions last weekend. 

As for the rest of the season. Harper 
offered a standard coaches response: "We 
just have to take it one game at a time."

Volleyball ranked 
number one in region 

Playoffs likely for talented team 


Staff Writer 

The California Lutheran Women's 

Volleyball team moved up from seventh to 
fifth in the National Rankings after three 
convincing wins this past week. 

On Tuesday they played host to the 
University of Redlands and beat them in 
three games (15-5, 15-5, 15-4). 

On Friday they traveled to La Verne, 
where it took them four games to knock out 
the University of La Verne (11-15, 15-5, 
15-7, 15-6). ' 

The very next day they took on Whittier 
College at home and sent them home after 
three games (15-7, 15-4, 15-7). 

The three wins moved them to 4-0 in 
SCIAC, and 14-1 overall. 

The Regal s have been led all season by 
junior outside hitter, Tracy Little. Little 
was the MVP of the Mizuno Invitational 
Tournament last month, and is averaging a 
team high 2.77 kills a game. 

The Regals played Occidental College 
last night at home. 

Upcoming games include an away game 
Friday at Pomona-Pitzer. 
The regular season ends on Nov. 2, but the 
team has much more in mind than that home 
finale. They are presently ranked first in the 
region, and if this ranking holds up it would 
buy them a generous seeding for the NCAA 
Championship Tournament in November. 

Intramurals continue 
as successful activity 

Volleyball sign-ups next week 

Staff Writer 

If you are looking for a great way to get 
involved in campus activities you might 
want to check out the intramural athletic 
teams at CLU. The only requirement for 
each participant is commitment and the 
ability to have a good time. 

The flag football teams are scheduled to 
play in the finals next week, but there is still 
time to create a team of CLU students for 
the upcoming volleyball tournaments. 

Darcy White, head of intramurals, says, 
"It's a good way to meet people and have 
fun." Commuters should consider it a great 
way to get involved with on-campus 

The Intramurals are open to all CLU 
students and everyone is encouraged to 
participate. She says, "It is great for people 
who participated in high school athletics 
and aren't involved in collegiate sports." 

Theelementof competition exists among 

the competing teams, especially with the 
finals approaching, but most of the students 
gather on North Field for a social game of 

At the end of the intramural football 
season the winners will receive a party in 
their honor. White says, "The winners get 
a pizza party and l-shirts." 

Don Bielke.adviser.andSteven Fjeldseth 
assist White in the organization of all 
intramural events. Football and volleyball 
are played during the fall semester and 
Spring is reserved for the basketball and 
softball competitions. 

The basic principle of intramurals is that, 
"men and women get involved together." 
The annual Beach Day, during the Spring 
semester, is sponsored by intramurals as 
another way of bringing the student body 
together in a friendly atmosphere. 

The intramural volleyball league will 
begin sign-ups next week in the cafeteria 
and if you have additional questions contact 
Darcy White at extension 3815.

Panel discusses myths of feminism 

Women speak of modern women's rights and support

A panel of feminists attempted to shatter and member of the community, believes 
the myths about 
feminism on Oct. 17

Tricia Marsac, a 
senior, didn't think of 
herself as a feminist 
until this summer. 

"I was too afraid of 
the confrontation the 
label feminism brings 
to mind," Marsac 

Marsac said that 
feminism isn't 
supposed to separate 
women. "I want other 
women to look at me 
as an example, as 
someone who's 
trying to join women 
together and show 
support for each 
other," she said. 

Kori Molina, a 
junior, defines a 

feminist as "a person who believes a 
woman's issues are as important as a mans." 

"My generation thinks of it (feminist) as 
a dirty word," Molina said. "I'm not anti- 
male, I believe that we're all equal in career 
and family." 

"I consider myself a neo-feminist," said 
Michaela Reaves of the History department.

her anger as a

life learning to be

greatly prevalent in the workplace. "From

New member 
appointed to 
judicial board 

Attendance policies 
passed by Senate 
and Programs Board 


Staff Writer 

Lisa Loberg was appointed to the 1 995 - 
96 ASCLU Judicial Board this week, 
approved by both the Programs Board 
and the Senate. 

There appeared to be nothing but 
unanimous support for her appointment. 
Amidst voices of support, the minutes of 
the Oct. 1 1 programs board meeting even 
say "will do a great job." 

Also both the Senate and the Programs 
Board passed the new attendance policy 
at their respective meetings this week. 

The basics of the new policy state 
every missed meeting equals 2 points. 
After 4 points the member will be called 
into an Executive Cabinet meeting by 
the ASCLU president, and after the third 
inexcused absence the member will have 
to give up his/her position. 

Under the new policy, being late or 
tardy would not count against you unless 
a member decided to takeanother member 
to the Judicial Board. 

Excused absences include prearranged 
school activities, emergencies, and 
extreme sickness. Inexcused absences 
include sports practice, work, class, and 

The Senate is also considering the 
purchase of propane heaters for the 

"We are going to see how well the four 
that we rented for the dance in the pavilion 
worked before we make any decisions," 
said Ian Sinks, senior senator. The 
propane heaters run about $600 each to 
buy and $60 each to rent. 

Mark Schoenbeck, ASCLU president 
cleared up some of the confusion over 
the heaters and their costs at the Oct. 23 
Senate meeting saying, "There was 
money in the original budget to buy 
space healers, but as construction went 
on, the space heaters and some of the 
fancier construction designs were cut in 
order to finish the project" 

The Programs Board meetings have 
been extremely busy planning 
homecoming for the last couple of weeks, 
but they came up with some ingenuitive 
ideas in order to get everything done, 
including a work sleep over, and getting 
up and decorating the campus every 
moming at 6:00 a.m. 

The Programs Board worked through 
numerous challenges, and last minute 
unknown problems including monetary 
squeezes and marching band conflicts. 

Desta Ronning, programs board 
directorexpressed the Programs Board's 
relief saying, "Programs Board is a good 
group of people. They worked hard to 
put on a week full of events that the 
students would like, and I know they did 
just that. I think we really shocked people 
with the carnival, that was fun, glad the 
week was successful and glad that it is 
over. Watch out for Programs Board in 
the future, we are here to rock some 


Oct 25, 1995 



A growing trend of 

apathy exists 

What is tradition when a school has only 
been in existencea mere 34 years? 

CLU does have "traditions," but even these 
vestiges of our past have sustained blows and 
scratches because we simply do not care 

Let's take Homecoming. In the past years, 
we cannot discount the fact that the number of 
people who celebrate this event has decreased. 
The university still has the parade, the game, 
the dance and the royal court, and yet these 
are only the skeletons of the true essence of 

Does not the phrase Homecoming suggest 
"homecoming?" In other words, coming 
home, coming back to the old alma mater? No 
one hardly ever comes home anymore. All of 
a sudden, we are faced with this grim reality 
that school spirit dies with the final wave to 
Gumby as we head out into "the real world." 

Another tradition that has been slightly 
ignored is the aspect of religion. What is a 
religious school without religion? Religion 
may be a part of the prescribed courses for 
graduation, but its significance is no more 
than a grade. 

The traditional Chapel services persist to 
exist on campus, although they lost much of 
their luster. When members of the CLU 
community go to Chapel, how many can say 
that they sit in the front pews? How many of 
us go for spiritual reasons? 

We do not deny that there are pious people 
who do attend Chapel for all the right reasons 
and who are proud of it. However, we cannot 
blindly turn our heads the other way because 
we just cannot accept that some — maybe 
most — of us attend for extra credit in a class. 

One group, alone, cannot solve this trend of 
apathy. The cooperation of the whole campus 
is necessary to stop this from spreading. CLU 
should get the alumni more involved in school 
activities, rather than alienate them just 
because they've already graduated. 

In regard to religion, academics should not 
be used as a crutch to get people to go to 
Chapel. The university provides a lecture 
series, why not use that for extra credit? 

It is not the sole responsibility of one group 
to amend the ways of the university. For 
students to feel proud of their identity 
everyone has to pitch in and make an effort.

Opposing Viewpoints 

Marijuana: A bad drug or a bad rap? 

Sports Editor 

Marijuana. Hemp. Cannabis. 

Most people hear these words and automatically think 
one of two things. 

"Yeah, let's go get high," or "Marijuana, that's a bad, 
harmful drug, and it should remain illegal." 

However, before any decisions are made, people should 
have some knowledge of the facts surrounding the plant. 

Right now, in California, there is a petition circulating 
that would put an initiative on the ballot next November 
prohibiting the "prosecution of persons of 21 or over for 
circulation, transportation, distribution, or consumption of 
marijuana for industrial, medicinal, nutritional, or personal 

Is this a good idea? 

Let's look at the facts. 

Marijuana is recognized as a medicinal treatment for 
several ailments, including asthma, glaucoma, nausea, 
muscle spasms, and migraines. 

The hemp seed is among the most nutritious plants on the 
planet. Only soybeans contain a higher percentage of 
proteins, and hemp seeds are the highest source of essential 
fatty acids in the plant kingdom. 

By itself, widespread use of hemp seed food protein 
could save many of the world's children now dying of 
protein starvation. 

Further, hemp is a plant that can grow even in adverse 
conditions. Australians survived two prolonged famines in 
the 19th century using almost nothing except hemp seeds 
for protein and hemp leaves for roughage. 

Also, hemp is the plant most capable of producing 
biomass, which could become a great source of energy. 
By the year 2000, the United States will have burned 
over 80 percent of its petroleum resources, while our coal 
reserves will not last more than a century. Also, both of 
these forms of energy have environmental drawbacks, 
including acid rain caused by the burning of coal. 

Hemp biomass is a solution. If 6 percent of the continental 
United States acreage was used to farm hemp, all of 
America's energy could come from hemp biomass. This 
would also increase employment, and the dying profession 
of farming would be reestablished and would become an 
essential part of the U.S. economy. 

There are many other upsides to hemp. 

Hemp is eight times stronger than cotton, and is a softer 
and more absorbent fabric. 

Hemp can be made into paper. This use of hemp would 
be a solution to the destruction of rain forests. Hemp can be 
planted over and over again on the same soil because of the 
numerous nutrients that it puts into the soil. Trees, on the 
other hand, destroy the land they are planted on and render 
the land more or less unusable. 

A final use of marijuana is probably the most well 
known: smoking it 

Many people all over the world smoke marijuana, and it 
is a much safer and healthier alternative to tobacco and 
alcohol. Also, don't believe all that propaganda about the 
dangers of marijuana. 

With all of these uses of hemp available, one might ask 
why it is illegal in the first place. 

The answer is simple. 

Some of the most powerful industries in the United 
States include: the tobacco industry, the oil industry, the 
cotton industry, the alcohol industry, and the meat industry. 
All of these industries have too much to gain by keeping 
marijuana illegal, considering they would be in direct 
competition with the hemp industry. 

However, as anyone can see, marijuana can be a very 
important product, and should be legal. 

To find out more about the history, the uses and the future 
of hemp, look for the book "The Emperor Wears No 
Clothes" by Jack Herer. 

Also, if possible, find a copy of the petition to put the 
legalization of marijuana on the ballot, and sign it Give this 
miracle plant a chance to prove its worth. 

Marijuana: Use lies outside the scope 
of natural human rights 


Contributing Writer 

Having worked in the law enforcement and drug and 
alcohol counseling fields for the last nine years, I have 
personally seen the damage that drug usage imparts upon 

A review of drug users' past substance abuse invariably 
shows, in a high percentage of cases, the use of marijuana 
at a very young age in a person's life. 

This is not to say that marijuana use will lead to other 
more powerful drugs or criminal activity yet it indicates 
the drugs' role as a gateway to other illegal substances and 
possibly more serious and dangerous behavior. 

With higher concentrations of THC (as much as 1 5% in 
some variations) found in marijuana, the effects of marijuana 

use are substantially stronger than in the past 

Driving while under the influence of marijuana is 
extremely dangerous due to a drivers delayed reaction time 
and concentration level. 

Criminal penalties for driving under the influence of 
marijuana include loss of one's driving privilege and worse. 

There is no compelling reason to legalize marijuana 
other than to appease the self-indulgent behavior of a 
minority of the nation's population. 

While recognizing the right to allow for freedom of 
expression and to recognize a person's individual liberties, 
the use of marijuana lies outside the scope of these natural 

The good of society as a whole outweighs the perceived 
need for individual choice as far as legalization of marijuana 
is concerned.

CLU junior's passion for life drives him to 
focus on school, work and the Surf Monkey 


Staff Writer 

Between school, work, sports and lei- 
sure activities, Jason Chronisicr still finds 
time to keep himself, and others, happy. 

The CLU junior, who majors in English 
and minors in Communication Arts, has a 
rough time juggling himself between all 
his commitments. Nonetheless, he finds 
contentment in the things that he does. 

"My friend and I, when we came here our 
freshman year, the thing we always said 
was 'You gotta make things happen,'" 
Chronister said. 

"He has since transferred to another 
school, but I'm still around," he mused. 

Chronister is from Antelope Valley, C A. 

"I was surprised at how many people in 
CLU come from that area," he said. 

Perhaps it is because of this familiarity 
that Chronister is able to fit in so well with 
the CLU community. 

Since his freshman year, Chronister has 
been handling a full load of 18 units each 

"I decided to take it easier this 
semester.. .I'm taking only 16," he said. 

Besides classes, Chronister spends his 
time juggling various activities to keep him- 
self more involved in school. 

He plays football, serves on the ASCLU, 
has a job as an RA and protects the Surf 

"First of all, I love football; I've played 
since I was in the seventh grade," Chronister 

Jason Chronister and the Surf Monkey

In the CLU football team, Chronister 
plays the defensive end, mostly on the JV 
team, since his freshman year. 

"Even though I'm not big enough, I try 
the best I can. It's a huge committment," he 

Chronister splits that committment with 
helping student athletes voice their con- 
cerns about CLU. 

He is not only the at-large Senator, but 
also serves on the Student Actions Commit- 
tee on the Senate. 

"As Senators we have a choice on what 
committee we'd like to serve on, and through 
this committee I'll be able to help athletes 
with their concerns," he said. 

Chronister encourages all students to 
voice their concerns and complaints. The 
committee is busy working on putting up 

boxes around campus and providing stu- 
dents with comment cards. 

"I feel that through this committee I can 
hook up with a lot of other duties," he said. 

Some of Chronister' s other duties in- 
clude working as an RA at Pederson Hall. 
He is the first student to attempt the heroic 
- being both a football player and an RA in 
the same year. 

"I decided to become an RA because I 
thought the qualities that an RA has are 
qualities that I thought I have," Chronister 

"It is a great job to have because you get 
to help students," he added. 

Chronister hopes to be able to give 
Pedersonites something new this year. 

"I always thought that what (the RAs) 
were doing was good, but you can always 

do something with a little twist to make it 
fun and interesting... not that their programs 
weren't fun and interesting," Chronister 

He acknowledges that his RA job has to 
come before his leisure activities, which 
include football, "which is hard." 

Chronister also leads a weekly bible study 
group in Pederson. 

"It's pretty hard sometimes. I have a 
really hectic schedule juggling all those 
things and I don't want to neglect any one 
area," he said. 

Chronister firmly believes in the impor- 
tance of being involved in school. 

He said that one reason people do not get 
as much out of their lives is because they 
"don't believe and they don't make things 

"I love football, I love people, I love 
life.. .and I want to make things happen," he 

This, coming from one of the proud pro- 
tectors of the Surf Monkey, should come as 
no surprise. 

The Surf Monkey has been a legend in 
CLU. It is a statue of a "little monkey on a 
surfboard" originating from Tijuana. 

Chronister said that whichever dorm has 
it has "supreme power." 

"The Surf Monkey is the guru of life," he 
said. ^ 

"And I just want Mount Clef to know that 
the Surf Monkey is in our possession right 
now," he added.

Road Rash Cycling club 
doubles in membership; 

plans to rent BMX track 

BBQ and professional riders to 
help round out evening of fun 

^ OM 1,000,000 BRAINS Served 

Staff Writer 

The Road Rash Cycling club's upcoming 
plan is to rent a BMX bike track for a night. 

The event will include professional bike 
riders doing various demonstrations and a 

It will be sponsored by the Camarillo 
Bike Company. Anyone from CLU will 
receive a discount from the shop. 

The Road Rash Cycling club is also 
planning on taking a couple of camping 
trips this year, starting next month. 

The club was founded last year by CLU 
student and now vice president of the club, 
C J. Ray. 

Kurt Maes is currently the President of 
the club which consists of 35-40 males and 
females. The club has nearly doubled in 
membership since last year. 

About 25 members of the club went to 
Mexico a few weeks ago for the Rosarito- 
Ensenada "Funride." Most participated in 
the Funride, but there were some who didn ' t 

"It was great," Maes said, "there was a 
fiesta party after the funride." 

A couple of beach rides are planned for 
this year. The club will drive to a trail at the 
base of the Santa Monica mountains, then 
ride down PCH, north of County Line. 

"We did a beach ride last year and it 
turned out well," Maes said. 

Last year a few members of the club went 
to Mi. Baldy for the Mt. Baldy Cup. 
Although no one from the club participated 
in the races, a few had the opportunity to 
work them and get paid for it- 
Ray and Maes partook in the L.A. 
Marathon Bike tour last year. They rode on 
the same course that the runners do. 

Aside from a few big events, daily or 
weekly rides around CLU are part of the 
Road Rash Cycling club's agenda. 

The club is open to anyone who wants to 
ride a bike, whether they have a bike or not. 

"I've got two bikes," Maes said, "Or 
there's usually one around for use."

Morning Glory editor prepares for 1996 
edition; Segal tells of trials and triumphs 


Staff Writer 

Laurie Segal, senior, is looking forward 
to another promising year for the Morning 
Glory. As editorof CLU's award- winning 
publication, she is already preparing for 
the upcoming 1996 edition. 

"I worked on various aspects during the 
summer, and we spend most of the fall 
semester training the staff and encourag- 
ing the school community to contribute to 
the Morning Glory" she said. 

In the spring, all entries are submitted to 
the Morning Glory staff, and "the work 
load increases tenfold." Segal also ex- 
plained that names and identifying marks 
on the pieces are removed before the judg- 
ing process takes place. 

"Judging, selection, layout, typesetting, 
and publishing follow afterwards," she 

The judging and selection process is 

often difficult for the staff. Aside from 
having to read "over 400 pieces," they also 
have to decide which pieces to publish. 

Segal pointed out that since the staff 
changes every year, the piece styles are also 
different each year and reflect the indi- 
vidual tastes of each member. 

"Each member of the staff brings with 
them their own intrinsic sense of what is 
meaningful and aesthetically pleasing in a 
piece of work," she said. 

Started in 1970 by Dr. Jack Ledbetter, 
Segal said the purpose of "the Morning Glory 
was "to produce a publication exhibiting 
the [artistic and written] works of CLU's 
student body." Eventually, the magazine 
came to embrace not only students', but 
faculty's work as well. 

In its 25-year history, the Morning Glory 
has won a number of prestigious awards. 
Among them are 14 "All-American 
Awards" (the top 5 percent of the nations 
college and high school magazines) and 

Saddler returns to 
CLU after absence 

Staff Writer 

The CLU psychology department wel- 
comes back a good friend this semester. 

After spending last year at the University 
of Great Falls directing the counseling pro- 
gram. Dr. C. Douglas Saddler has returned 
from his leave of absence to direct the 
graduate program for psychology at CLU. 

"You always learn something when you 
visit a new place and it is always an adven- 
ture," Saddler said of his trip to Montana. 

The year at Great Falls was the second 
time he has taken a leave of absence to work 
at another school. 

Five years ago he taught at Arkansas 
State. However, although he has enjoyed 
both experiences, he said that he won't do 
it again. 

"I always come back having learned some- 
thing new," Saddler said, however, he would 
like to take the time to have different expe- 

As for the time he spent in Montana, he 
said it was different from California. 

"There is a lot more rural-related activi- 
ties, leisure, cowboys, hunting," Saddler 
said, noting also that "every corner seemed 
to have a bar on it." 

Back at CLU, he has been busy so far. 

He is in the process of starting changes in 
the graduate program, switching from a 
focus on counseling to a focus on clinical 

The curriculum is in the process of being 
revised and it will take effect fall semester 

Also, Dr. Julie Kuehnel, the psychology 
department chair, has asked that a research 
component be added to the undergraduate 

All this work will be done in Saddler's 
last year as head of the psychology 
department's graduate program. 

He has already requested to be relieved of 
these duties, and beginning next year, Dr. 
Leanne Womack will take over his posi- 

His plans for next fall are focused on a 
return to teaching full time. 

"I'll be teaching and doing research with 
students at both the graduate and under- 
graduate level," he said, noting that the 
research results may be of most interest in 
the department with paper presentations and 
conferences being a possibility. 

The main thing he is looking forward to is 
making the CLU graduate program a qual- 
ity part of the campus. 

"I'd like to keep involved with the gradu- 
ate program," he said, noting that "one of 
the things that will distinguish Cal Lutheran 
from other schools is the quality of its 
graduate program." 

"I am very interested in developing the 
quality of the program in order to enhance 
the stature of CLU," Saddler said. 

Away from CLU, Saddler remains a very 
busy man. 

He is married and the father of three boys. 

He is also a licensed psychologist and is 
involved in work with the Personal Care 
Psychology Group in Los Angeles. 

This group is a fledgling operation that 
visits nursing homes and psychiatric awards 
and does work in these places. 

In his spare time he enjoys a variety of 
activities including fishing, hunting, camp- 
ing and running. 

A few weeks ago he and his wife spent a 
weekend with Dr. Ted Eckman and his wife 
camping at Kings Canyon in Sequoia Na- 
tional Park. 

However, the rest of the year should be an 
interesting one for Saddler. With all the 
changes in the graduate program, his under- 
graduate classes and his work with the 
Personal Care Psychology Group, he plans 
on very active. 

one "Pacemaker" (awarded to the top five 
college magazines in the nation). TheMorn- 
ing Glory has also been inducted into the 
"All- American Hall of Fame" (after having 
won 10 All- Americans). 

With all these past accomplishments, 
working on the Morning Glory can be a 
daunting task. However, Segal said she 
feels confident that the magazine will be 
recognized again for its achievements. 

Like the rest of the magazine staff, Segal 
hopes to continue the Morning Glory award- 
winning tradition. She also hopes to see 
more works that reflect CLU's diverse stu- 
dent body. 

"This year, I'd like to see more written 
work from students of disciplines other 
than English, Communication Arts and 
Drama," she said. 

"I have learned in the past couple of years 
that most everyone is a closet writer," she 

Through her work with the Morning 
Glory, Segal has not only learned the tech- 
nical aspects of magazine publishing, but 
she said the job has also helped her to 
understand herself and others better. 

"I believe that I've become more aware 
of my emotions and the emotions that are an 
integral part of any art. I also know my

fellow students better through their work," 
she said. 

For students or faculty members wishing 
to submit a (written) work to the Morning 
Glory, Segal offers a word of advice, "write 
from your heart and trust in your abilities." 

CLUnet News 

CLUnet Dorm 


ISS Contributing Writer 

The Office of Information Systems 
and Services will assume responsibil- 
ity for installing network interface cards 
(NIC) in dorm students' personal com- 
puters beginning immediately. 

In the past, students had to take their 
computers to a local computer vendor 
who installed the NIC and downloaded 
the network software. 

With this change, getting connected 
will not require a trip off campus and 
will stream-line the process for getting 
physically connected. 

The cost for getting connected will 
not change and the quality of NIC will 
be much higher. To schedule a network 
installation, call the Help Desk at ext. 
3698 or send an e-mail message ad- 
dressed to "help". 

A NIC provides several advantages 
to using a modem to access CLUnet. 
The NIC does not tie up the phone line 
so that you can talk on the phone and 
use the computer at the same time. 

If you are not using the PPP connec- 
tion, you will have a graphical user 
interface - Netscape in particular - when 
using a NIC. 

You can access the DRAweb com- 
mercial databases with Netscape when 
using a NIC. Lastly, the NIC provides 
much faster data access. 

To connect a personal computer to 
CLUnet (California Lutheran 

University 's Network), the ISS recom- 
mends the following hardware con- 
figurations for optimal functionality: 

• 486 DX2, 66 mhz, 8MB RAM, 100 
MB free hard disk space (includes 
Windows and DOS), 3.5 floppy disk 
drive, VGA color monitor, mouse, DOS 
6.22 and Windows 3.11. 

• Macintosh Performa 6XX/Quadra 
or Power MAC, 8 MB RAM, 10 MB 
free hard disk space, 3.5 floppy disk 
drive, color monitor, mouse. System 
7.1 or higher. 

Less powerful machines may be con- 
figured for network access. Older MS- 
DOS/IBM compatibles (286s and 386s) 
can be used for e-mail and Internet 
access, and with application software 
such as WordPerfect 5.1, Lotus 123 r 
2.2, and dBASE. The minimum con- 
figuration includes: 1 MB RAM, 10 
MB free hard disk storage space and

'^De Donde?' displays trials and tribulations 
of immigrants to a simpathetic audience 


Staff Writer 

CLU's Drama department was more 
than happy to present "^De Donde?" which, 
freely translatedmeans "Where are you 

According to Ken Gardner, director of 
"^De Donde?" the play was written in the 
1 980s when thousands of refugees fled from 
political upheaval in Central America. 

He also noted that "this play does not 
advocate open borders but asks us to look at 
the plight of several refugees." 

"iDe Donde?" focused on the many 
reasons why immigrants escape their 
countries to come to the United States. 

It also gave previews of the kind of 
treatment that the immigrants received by 
the border guards and by the INS officials. 

The immigrants each told their stories on 
why they had come to the United States. 

For all of the immigrants, coming to the 
United States was a way out of their 
corrupted government system. 

Some of the actors portrayed their 
characters' stories so well that the audience 
was able to easily empathize with their 


"There were moments that the emotions 
acted on stage were felt in the audience," 
said Norma Murrillo, junior. Regina 
Martinez, also a junior, said "actors Miguel 
Cabrera and Edgar Aguirre made the play 
come to life for me. They brought a lot of 
emotional feelings about my culture." 

Since the play ran for nearly two hours, it 
was divided into short segments from 
immigrants crossing the border to getting 
caught and being deported. The audience 
had the opportunity to listen to the 
immigrants' testaments on whether they 
would be deported or not. 

The audience also witnessed how the 
INS took advantage of the immigrants by 
setting up high bails in order for them to be 
let out. 

For many "^De Donde?," was a great 
play outlining the experiences that a lot of 
immigrants face when coming to the United 
States, while for others "^De Donde?" was 
justanother play thatbroughtback memories 
about their culture. 

The play is schedule to continue Oct 26, 
28-29 for those who have not yet seen it.

KCLU celebrates 
one year of air time 


Staff Writer 

VenturaCounty'sonly National Public 
Radio Station, KCLU KCLU 88.3 FM, 
celebrated its first year of broadcasting 
Friday. This celebration gave KCLU the 
security to continue its mission in 
providing educational culture and 
informational programming to 
residences throughout Ventura County. 

"KCLU is a non profit public radio 
station," said Mary D. Olsen, marketing 
and developing director of KCLU. She 
explained how the station is not 
financially supported by any organization 
or federal programs. 

She added that the station's source of 
acquiring money is through memberships 
and grants. Olsen described membership 
as a way of asking listeners to support 
KCLU financially to ensure that the 
station stays on the air. 

"The membership fee is $40 a year. 
That is only 1 1 cents a day," she said. 
She also described challenge grants as 
money that is put up by businesses and 
that the station uses to challenge listeners. 

Biannually, in the spring and the fall, 
KCLU holds these on-air fund-raisers 
called "membership drives." 

"Last fall during our first membership 
drive, listeners donated more than 
$ 1 7,000 to KCLU. This fall our goal is to 
raise $25,000," Olsen said. 

She would also like to encourage 
students to volunteer as phone operators 
to stand by the phones and take peoples 

Anyone who is interested can stop by 
KCLU and sign up. The membership 
drive will begin on Oct. 28, and run 
through Nov. 3. 

Olsen again encourages everyone to 
help KCLU by becoming members and 
reminds everyone that no donation is too 
small, just as long as it helps support 

Olsen invites everyone to visit KCLU 
for a tour of the station or simply just to 
meet the staff. 

She added that she'll be more than 
happy to explain to students, faculty 
members, and administration the hard 
efforts it takes to run a National Public 
Radio Station. 






Chapel speaker offers a message of 
hope and faith in God's guidance 

Swanson shares his experience and insight 


Staff Writer 

God's guidence is important throughout 
peoples' lives, Gerald Swanson told the 
audience in chapel on Oct 11. 

The speaker is director of CLU 's Learning 
Resource Center. 

In this opening message, Swanson shared 
some of the experiences he had while on 
sabbatical at the University of Namibia. 

He said that although the country was 
undergoing a time of political upheaval and 
his wife, Dr. Jan Bowman, English 
professor, underwent a chronic illness, he 
always felt that God was with them through 
their journey. 

"We have assurance that God is good, 
and he accompanies and guides us on our 
journey," he said. 

Swanson's focus passages were Isaiah 
42: 14-16 and John 14:1-3. 

Part of the Isaiah passages say, "I will 
lead the blind by ways they have not known, 
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them 
and make the rough places smooth" (NI V; 
Isaiah 42:16). 

John 14: 1 reads, "Do not let your hearts 
be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me." 

With these biblical passages, Swanson 
emphasized the educator's role in healing 
our communities. 

He then explained that the authors of 
Isaiah were exiled from their homeland, but 

Members of the CLU community view portions of the AIDS quilt that were 
displayed In Samuelson Chapel during the service on Oct. 11.

we are in "exile" from our responsibilities. 

"We seem to be in exile from compassion 
and care in our community," he said. 

He added that our society is living in a 
"fearful time," and there is a "hunger for 
what things ought to be." 

For the educators in the audience, 

Swanson stressed the importance of caring 
and sharing in the classroom. 

"The path of learning and sharing is God's 
way of leading us out of exile," he said. 

Throughout life's journey God will guide 
and help us bring hope to a fearful world, 
Swanson said. 

Club explores 
various issues 


Staff Writer 

The Philosophy Club is getting ready 
for an exciting year with several outings 

These excursions include a camping 
trip and a visit to the Museum of 
Tolerance in Los Angeles. 

"The Philosophy Club provides 
students a chance to come together and 
explore important issues," Jon Rogers, 
senior, said. 

"It provides a community of people 

who like to think and wonder," he 

Rogers fills the position most clubs 
would call the president, although he 
said he prefers the term "main guru." 

One of the themes for the Philosophy 
Club this semester is aging. 

As a result, the group visited the 
Gobel Senior Center in Thousand Oaks 
f or baJ I room dancing and conversation. 

"I've never felt so inspired by older 
people as I did then," Rogers said. 

Members of the club have spoken 
with Dennis Johnson about the 
direction in which CLU is headed. 

"We had some concerns that they 
were concentrating too much on 
beautifying the campus rather than 
academic improvement," Rogers said. 

Those interested in joining the club 
should contact Rogers at exL 3122. 

"It's not what you would normally 
think a philosophy club to be. It's very 
informal," he said. 

Senior puts her musical talent to good use 

Stark voluntarily takes charge of leading Chapel Choir 

Staff Writer 

Senior Jaynette Stark not only directs and 
conducts the Chapel Choir for CLU's Lord 
of Life congregation, she does it almost for 
free. It is truly a labor of love. 

"I get paid a little bit through the Lord of 
Life Congregation, but it's not like a stan- 
dard job, I just do it basically because I want 
to," she said. 

It may not be a regular job, but it still 
requires a time commitment. Aside from 
the hour-long weekly rehearsals and the 
Sunday performances, she must choose the 
repertory, find the pieces and discuss them 
with her accompanist, senior Derek Helton. 

That leaves her with less than a week to 
prepare the choir, and still she prepares 
them beautifully. 

Musical Background 

Stark began her musical training at a very 
early age in her home state of Utah. "I've 
been playing the piano since the age of 5. 1 
started singing in choir in the seventh grade, 
and I've been singing ever since. I play the 
cello, and all of the string instruments," she 

"I feel that I'm praising 
God through what I'm 
doing with singing." 

She became interested in choral conduct- 
ing after arriving at CLU. "As a freshman, 
I started singing with the Chapel Choir and 
the conductor at that time was a senior who 
has since graduated," Stark said. 

"Last year, I 
was working ___^^______^__ 

together with 
the associate 
minister. She 
did a lot of the 
and would also 
let me do some 
(of the con- 
ducting). I took 
a class in con- 
ducting and be- 
came more 


She basically gave it over to me," she added. 

Although Stark is taking piano and voice 
lessons, she is not a music major. 

"I have a minor in music, but I'm an 
English major. I figured that would be more 
versatile. I'm not exactly sure what I want 
to do. I know I want to keep music as a 
hobby — if nothing else, just singing in a 
church choir— but I'm not sure how far I'll 

go with that," she said. 

Stark said she also gains a sense of spiri- 
tual satisfaction with her music. 

"In a way, I feel that I'm praising God 
through what I'm doing with singing," she

she stood

ing a piece

This Very

Harris, the

the splendor 

of the chapel, 

combined to 
create a truly spiritual feeling. Although 
there were only eight singers present, they 
sounded more like a hundred. 

Stark said she intends on directing the 
choir next semester, her last at CLU. 

"I don't know what will happen after 
that. I'm sure one of the singers in the group 
will probably take over, and we'll work 
together next semester," she said 

Jaynette Stark 

Tips for future conductors 

Stark gives this advice to whomever takes 
her place next yean "Be relaxed and don't 
put yourself on a pedestal. The singers will 
work for you when you understand where 
they'recoming from. If you say, Tin mighty 
and everyone needs to pay attention to 
me!,' you won't get much respect and you 
won't get much accomplished. If you can 
relate to your singers or performers, it's a 
big plus." 

The Chapel Choir consists of about ten 
singers and Stark has nothing but praise for 
them. "I have a really great group, they 
listen and work really well together." 

The Chapel Choir performs on most Sun- 
days in chapel, and they always welcome 
new singers. 

"It's open to anyone who likes to sing," 
the conductor said.

Stagecoach Inn and Musem beckons 
visitors to step back 100 years in time 


Staff Writer 

You may under no circumstances dye 
your hair. 

You may not dress in bright colors. 

You will not marry during the term of 
your contract 

You are not to keep company with men. 

You may not loiter downtown in ice 
cream stores. 

You must wear at least two petticoats. 

No wonder the unfortunate ladies were 
so quick to tan the hides off their pupils. 
Who could blame them after seeing a sample 
of "1915 Rules For Teachers?" 

This is the sort of history The Stagecoach 
Inn and Museum in Newbury Park has to 
offer by bringing the past into the present 
with examples of early California living. 

Furnished like a stagecoach stop and trav- 
elers inn at the turn of the century, the 
museum is a time machine with docents in 
long skirts and high-necked blouses acting 
as conductors. 

As part of the tour through the inn, do- 
cents can tell you how the expression "spin- 
ster" was coined, or show you an oil-heated 
iron and a telephone without a dial. And 
they can divulge the story of Mad Agnes 
and Pierre, two ghosts who are said to haunt 
the inn. 

Built in 1876 as the Grand Union Hotel, 
the Monterey style building was moved 90 
years later to make way for the 1 1 freeway. 

Just four years after surviving the move 
up Ventu Park Road, the solid redwood inn 
burned to the ground. 

Rebuilt according to old pictures and 

blueprints, the Stage-

seum is complete with 
carriage house, black-

reproduction of the 
first school built in the 
Conejo Valley.

short trail system 
called the Tri- Village.

The Regals soccer team continued on its

with three more wins and a lie in SCIAC 
play improving their record to 14-2-2, 10- 

The team still has one game remaining on 
Saturday at 1 p.m. at the North Field. 

"We have to win our last game, and then 
we just wait and see what happens, " said 
junior defender Mary Vincent concerning 
the Regals chances to attain a post season 

"We definitely deserve to go, because we 
are ranked in the Top 20 ana our record is as 
good as anybody else's," said Vincent. 

The past week for the team included two 
wins over SCIAC opponents, 8-1 over 
Occidental last Saturday and 7-0 at Whittier 
last Wednesday. 

Those two games were highlighted by a 
barrage of scoring by a variety of different 
people, including three goals by Kim 
Holeman against Whittier, and two goals 
by Margaret Vestal and Holly Roepke 
against Occidental. 

Other players who scored goals over the 
weekend include Melissa Brown, Silje 
Gjose, Lara Philby, Jill Simmer, Deanna

goals at Whittier, and added her team-

Goalkeeper Amy Walz has also had a 
strong season, posting a record of 12-2-2, 
with a goals against average below one. 

As far as the rest of the season goes, the 
team can only put its hopes in the hands of 
the NCAA selection committee and prepare 
to play some of the top teams in the nation. 

"We know we have a really strong team 
and we really feel that we can play with 
anybody," Vincent said. 

"We're just hoping that we proved 
ourselves enough that we can make the

shows that we can beat a lot of the teams

Kingsmen battle for 
SCIAC championship 

Playoff chances remain slim for 
young and talented team 


Sports Editor 

The Kingsmen soccer team continued its 
roll through the SCIAC schedule with four 
more victories in the league over the past 
two weeks. 

They played Pomona-Pi tzer yesterday in 
a game that would decide the SCIAC 

"We are confident going into the game 
because I feel we're the best team io the 
SCIAC.and have been playing like it lately," 
sophomore midfielder Sebastian Alvarado. 

The team has played well of late, defeating 
Whittier in the first round of the SCIAC 
playoff tournament, 3-1, and improving 
their record to 10-6- 1 overall and a perfect 
8-0 in the SCIAC. 

The team also defeated Whittier earlier in 
the week, 3-1, with goals split between 
Aluede Okokhere, Jan Hammervold, and 
Matt Romeo. 

However, the Kingsmen suffered through 
an embarrassing defeat to The Master's 
College last Wednesday, 5-1. 

"That game we don't want to talk about," 

junior midfielder Frode Davanger said. 

The lone goal came from Edwin Astudillo. 

As far as the team's chances for the 
playoffs go, they need to win SCIAC to 
have any chance. 

"Wedefinitely havea much better chance 
if we win SCIAC," Alvarado said. 

However, with the team's poor record of 
2-6-1 against nonconference opponents, 
they may not have proven themselves 
worthy of a berth in the NCAA playoffs. 

The team has been led in scoring by 
Okokhere, a junior forward, who has 17 
goals and eight assists over the season. 

Other standouts have included 
Hammervold, who has scored a goal in 
three of the past four games, and Brian 
Collins, who added his 1 1th goal of the 
season in a 7-0 victory over La Veme two 
weeks ago. 

"It has been a real team effort," said 
Alvarado, however, adding that many 
players have made contributions over the 

However, next week the Kingsmen will 
simply have to wait to see if their season 
will continue. 

Regals break school 
record with 15 straight 

Team has eyes on second 
straight title; playoffs upcoming 

News Editor 

Regals volleyball retained their hold of 
first place in SCIAC with a win at the 
University of Redlands last Saturday. 

The win moved the Regals to 18-2 overall 
and 8-0 in league. The loss to UC San Diego 
on Oct 17 (9-15, 6-15. 13-15) broke their 
15 game winning streak. 

The streak was a club record beating the 
14 in a row set in 1987. 

The Regals have upcoming matches at 
Whittier on Friday, and at Occidental next 
Tuesday . They then have a non-league match 
at home versus Dominguez Hills at 7:30 
p.m. before battling Pomona-Pi tzer at home 
in their last regular season match. 

The loss to UC San Diego was 
disappointing because the Regals had beaten 

them earlier at UC San Diego (15-10, 12- 
15, 17-15, 15-8). This time UC San Diego 
was ready for the Regals posting a 
dominating (9-15, 6-15, 13-15) victory. 

The Regals recovered on Oct 20 with an 
overpowering victory (15-2, 15-1, 15-10). 

They then began a new streak with a road 
victory at Redlands (15-8, 15-4, 13-15, 15- 

As of Oct. 20, senior Darcy White leads 
the Regals in kills with 200 followed by 
junior Tracy Little with 199. 

Sophomore Liz Martinez leads the Regals 
with 36 aces followed by Little with 23. 
Little also leads the team in digs with 230

Jennifer Pappas with 25 solo blocks.

Kingsmen score big in Homecoming victory

42-0 victory leaves team in first 
place with tough schedule ahead 


Contributing Writer 

The Kingsmen football team gave CLU 
alumni something to cheer about at the 
homecoming game Saturday. 

CLU posted a 42-0 win over the Whittier 
College Poets, the largest victory margin 
for the Kingsmen in 13 years. 

Head coach Joe Harper said that the team ' s 
three-game win streak has given the players 
a lot of confidence. He hopes that this will 
carry over to the game against at Pomona- 
Pitzer on Saturday at 7 p.m. 

However, he's not letting his optimism 
cloud his vision. 

"We've basically won our first three 
games over our three weakest opponents," 
said Harper, adding that the real test will 
come in the final weeks of the season. 

The Kingsmen are 3-0-0 in the Southern 
California Intercollegiate Athletic 
Conference and 3-2-1 overall and will be 
facing their three toughest opponents in the 
weeks to come. 

After Pomona-Pitzer will come 
University of Redlands at CLU on Nov. 4 
and the season finale at University of 

La Verne on Nov. 11 against the team 
considered by most to be the team to beat in 
the SCIAC. 

Harper said he feels that if the Kingsmen 
stay focused and continue to play the way 
they're capabable of play ing, the team could 
win the SCIAC title this year. 

Six different players scored touchdowns 
Saturday including a touchdown run by 
Fredrick Nanhed, a recovered fumble in the 
end zone for Tony Papa and an interception 
returned for a TD by Chad Valousky. 

The real story for the team has been 
Frederick Nanhed over the past two weeks. 

Against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps two 
weeks ago, Nahed ran for a school record 
318 yards and followed up that game with 
a 213 yard performance this past week. 

The offensive line should receive a lot of 
credit for this, as they have provided a great 
options for the talented Nanhed. 

Another standout has been Valousky on 
the defensive side of the ball with five 
interceptions in the past five weeks and two 
of these returned for touchdowns.

Midnight madness begins hoops 

Team confident as start of season approaches 


Staff Writer 

The Kingsman basketball team slammed 
and jammed their way into the new season 
with a midnight scrimmage and slam dunk 
competition early Monday morning. It was 
the teams first official practice, and the gym 
was packed with dunk crazed fans. 

Practice began with the introduction of 
the 1995 team to the rowdy fans. 

Next a rather casual scrimmage was 
played between the team where nearly every 
team member got to show off a little for the 

fans. The dunk contest immediately 
followed the game. 

Freshman guard Mike Delaney turned 
the most heads that evening bringing fans 
to their feet numerous times. 

Delaney blocked two shots, buried a three 
pointer, and made the only dunk of the 
scrimmage, but this youngster's night 
wasn't over yet. 

He went on to make three gravity defying 
dunks en route to winning the dunk contest. 

The night begins a long season for the 
Kingsmen who start play on Nov. 1 8 at the 
Menlo College Tournament, and don't 
finish the regular season until Feb. 22. 

Last year the Kingsmen finished second 
to Redlands in the SCIAC, but the players 
this year are hoping for a different story. 

" We should win the SCIAC, and make it 
to the NCAA tournament," junior transfer 
center Andy Saint said, adding "we've got 
some great players on this team." 

In order to win the conference 
championship it may come down to the last 
game of the year, when the Kingsmen host 
last season's SCIAC champions, the 
University of Redlands. 

However, coach Rich Rider has assembled 
some fine new talent to go along with the 
experience and talentof the returning players.

MOSAIC festivities unite cultures 

Event exemplifies diversity with food, dance and more 


Staff Writer 

"MOSAIC: A Celebration of Cultures" 
provided students with an opportunity to 
widen their horizons and express their 
appreciation for different c ultural lifestyles. 

The four-day event lasted from Oct. 25 to 
Oct. 28. 

"The idea is to give people an opportunity 
to get a picture of the vast varieties of 
cultures out there, and hopefully allow them 
to be able to see things from other places 
that they don't normally see," said Tonya 
Chrislu, director of Student Services and 

International Programs. 

"We're calling the festival MOSAIC 
because even though California has often 
been referred to as the melting pot, we 
prefer to think of it as the tiles of a mosaic 
being the cultures of the world, and how 
those cultures, when they come together, 
form this beautiful and magnificent piece of 
art," she added. 

This year was the second annual MOSAIC 

"Two years ago, we had a global 
appreciation week which was primarily 
organized by the students. 

"It was a good experience but it was 

tough for the students because it was 
organized around their midterms and they 
have to juggle to put things on," Chrislu 

Since then, Chrislu took over organizing 
the MOSAIC festival, with help from "a 
couple of people from other offices." 

Her office decided to make the festival an 
ongoing tradition for CLU. 

MOSAIC 1995 offered a little bit of 
everything for everyone. 

On Oct. 25, the festivities started with a 
multicultural chapel service at 10a.m. atthe 
Samuelson Chapel.

Plans for new 


building underway 

CLU to host Lutheran 
Deans Conference 


Staff Writer 

The Board of Regents meeting this past 
weekend and the search for a new director 
of admissions sparked interest Monday at 
the Senate meeting. 

The Board of Regents concentrated on 
getting a new humanities building started. 
The new humanities building will be built 
on the site of the present regents building, 
and the cost of the project is about $4 
million.- ■' ■ ■ '* M 

"Hopefully it will start by next year," said 
Mark Shoenbeck, president of the ASCLU. 

He said the Board of Regents goal is to 
always have a new project started 
immediately after a building is done. 

The Regents are also focused on plans for 
the sports center on the north campus, which 
will take place after the humanities building 
is done. 

"Regents are very impressed with what 
the Senate and Programs board are doing," 
said Bill Stott, student life adviser. 

CLU will be hosting the Lutheran Deans 
Conference, this coming weekend and "ai 
some point in lime all of the deans will be or 
campus. This is an exciting experience u 
have them here," Stott said. 

The search for a new director o 
admissions has come down to two mail 
candidates. One candidate is Mark Mereditl 
from Cal State Fullerton. 

"He understands the California stati 
college system," Stott said. 

Deborah Slaley, director of academi" 
advising at the University of La Veme, i 
also a candidate. Stott said he was alst 
impressed with her credentials. 

The individual who attains this job, "wil 
spearhead CLU recruiting for the nex 
several years," he said.

"The Programs Board meeting seemed 
quite pumped up, and high spirited

The meeting dealt with the members

addressing the vision of the founders of 

"Today we recognize we stand on the 
shoulders of our founders," he said. 

Wennes also said his observation is that 
we all have a calling or a vocation. This is 
stewardship and faith. 

"If you want to wait around, nothing 
much is going to happen," he said. 

Wennes continued, saying if there is a 
guiding light, CLU is the place to go if one 
really wants to find their calling. He used 
the example of a girl whose family wanted 
her to become a doctor. 

Instead, this young woman realized she 
wanted to become an educator. 

Wennes also said Lutheran colleges 
should be vocational schools. He explained 
this by telling the audience they should be 
places where one gets a calling or a vocation. 

He added a lot of people do not have a 
calling or vocation, and that CLU is "a good 
place to find it." 

He used Jesus' parable of the talents as an 

"Those that squander will lose," Wennes 

Wennes also reminded the leaders of 
CLU of their most important role at CLU. 

"Be a mentor, model, and midwife," he 
said, adding that there is "the power of God 
in our works," and that there is "power in 
you and around you." 

Also at the Founders Day Convocation 
the Christus Award was presented to Dr. 
Carl and Ruth Segerhammar, who were 
said to be the "two best-known and popular 
figures on campus." 

Among their awards and honors, Carl 
Segerhammar was elected president of the

Marriott policy in 
need of change 

Marriott's meal system at CLU is not meeting the 
needs of the students. Three problems need to be 

The first problem is the company payment policy. 
Marriott requires CLU to pay a huge base sum of 
money up front at the beginning of each year. This 
causes CLU to force its on-campus residents to buy 
into a meal plan. That is the only way CLU can afford 
to pay Marriott to provide its services. 

Marriott's policy puts CLU at a disadvantage 
because of the required meal plan system. Many 
students would rather cook their own food than eat at 
the cafeteria because they could save money and eat 

Students know that once they get to CLU they have 
a choice of 10, 15, or 19 meals per week. However, 
Marriott needs to realize that sometimes students 
can't make it to all of their paid meals. 

Once the week is up and students haven't used all 
of their meals, they are gone forever. They don't go 
toward the next week, they can't give them to their 
friends and they definitely don't get refund checks 
from Marriott at the end of each week. This turns out 
to be a huge waste of money for most students at CLU. 

This is not a fair way to do business, especially 
when students are in a position of financial despair. 
Marriot is clearly taking advantage of themby charging 
for what isn't even used. 

Marriott is a fairly large company. Therefore, it 
should be able to offer a meal system in which 
students could pay as they go. The meal cards could 
be like credit cards, where students would pay week 
by week for the meals they used. 

CLU students should only be charged specifically 
for what they eat. Often there is only time to grab a 
bagel and a piece of fruit for breakfast, yet students 
are still charged $4.50 for it because they are paying 
the buffet price for the meal. 

The next common problem CLU students have 
with Marriott occurs when they want to take food out 
of the cafeteria. The system doesn ' t enable them to do 
so. Even though students are overcharged for meals 
and not refunded for meals they don't use, snacks 
still can't be taken out of the cafeteria. 

Many would like to buy snacks to eat in their rooms 
while they are studying late at night. It doesn't seem 
like too much to ask. 

The cafeteria should be set up in a restaurant style. 
Students would come in and order from a choice of 
meals similar to what they choose from now. Certain 
things would have to be made beforehand, but grilled 
items could be made to order like the way they make 
omelets at breakfast. Students would then have a 
ticket with all of their items on it for each meal and 
then be charged accordingly. The solution is simple. 

If Marriott can't make these changes, CLU should 
look into switching companies. In this area there is a 
lot of competition between businesses. It wouldn't be 
difficult to find one that is flexible and meets the 
needs of CLU students.

The Mike and Brian Show 

Hints on making every day a good day to be 
a Cal Lutheran Regal/Kingsman 


Another activity brought to you by Student Activities. 
Hi, we're the Mike and Brian show and together we 
represent both Student Activities and Residence Life. 
Throughout our time here (for Mike it has now been about 
1 1/2 years and for Brian it's been 4 1/2) we have seen CLU 
grow, not necessarily in size, but in spirit and tradition. 

"Who are Mike and Brian?" you ask. Well, Michael 
Fuller is the coordinator of Student Activities and the area 
residence coordinator of New West. Go New West. Go 
New West. He is also a 1994 graduate of Pacific Lutheran 
University, is married to Erin (another PLU grad), and 
started working at CLU in the summer of 1994. Brian 
McCoy isa 1995graduateofCalifornia Lutheran University 
(Go Kingsmen and Regals), is the husband of Jenni, the 
father of the infamous Ashley, and began working at CLU 
this August as the Assistant Coordinator of Student Activities 
and the area residence coordinator of Pederson and 
Thompson. Together we supervise 1 7 Resident Assistants, 
advise the ASCLU, oversee the InterClub Council, advise 
three Hall Councils, and in short have a hand in the majority 
of activities that take place on campus. To make a long story 
short, we both love our jobs and cannot believe that we get 
paid to do what we do. 

For those of you who are seniors this year, you have been 
lucky enough to see CLU go through some major transitions. 
You have seen the SUB become a student center, the true 
development of hall councils, you have seen the ASCLU 
become two bodies - Programs Board and Senate, the 
residence halls have become programming meccas, the 
development of lounges and front desks, the halls have 
become full and are now at more than capacity, you have 
seen the construction of the Pavilion, and best of all... you 
have been a part of it all. 

First, CLU is a leadership factory. While it is our pet 
peeve when people try and compare CLU with other 
schools, I think every once in a while there ought be an 
exception to the rule... like right now. Do you realize how 
many leadership opportunities there are for you at California 
Lutheran? Between both the ASCLU Programs Board and 
Senate, becoming an RA, serving as a club officer, being a 
member of music or in drama, being an athlete, or serving 
on a committee — we are talking about hundreds of 
positions that are out there calling your name. Ninety 
percent of your time at CLU will be spent outside of the 
classroom and CLU administrators are here to help you 
capitalize on this. At other schools you might have the 
opportunity to be in one or two student groups or 
organizations, but at CLU you are only limited by the 
amount of hours in the day and the fact that every once in 
a while you need to sleep. 

Second, CLU students are lucky to go to a school where 
administrators and faculty care so much about them. Being 
a part of CLU is somewhat like belonging to a very large 
family. Trust us, there are few schools around in 1995 with 
administrators who will suck around or come back at 10 
p.m. to go to The Need or put on a program, because this is 
the time of the day that is best for students. CLU has people 
like Bev Kemmerling.directorof Health Services, who has 

been known to come back on weekends to administer that 
much needed shot and Dennis Bryant, of Event Services, 
and Gordon Randolph, of facilities, who get here at about 
6 a.m. and are often seen on campus at about 1 1 p.m. They 
are here because they believe in the cause and enjoy being 
a part of something special. 

Third, oh yes, that mission statement "California Lutheran 
University is a diverse scholarly community dedicated to 
excellence in the liberal arts and professional studies. 
Rooted in the Lutheran tradition of Christian faith, the 
university encourages critical inquiry into matters of both 
faith and reason. The mission of the university is to educate 
leaders for a global society who are strong in character and 
judgment, confident in their identity and vocation, and 
committed to service and justice." Being a part of CLU 
does not mean you are Lutheran or that you are hiding from 
state schools. However, what it does mean is that as a 
student you ought to have the opportunity to challenge and 
question your beliefs, when you leave CLU you should be 
belter off than when you came here, and members of the 
CLU environment are seen as leaders locally and globally. 
This is what CLU's mission is all about. 

Fourth, if you don't like it — then change it. We do not 
believe in whining. In fact for those of you who have 
worked with us you will often hear us ask, "So what are you 
going to do about it?" You don't like the mascot, call up 
Athletic Director Bruce Bride and say you want to serve on 
a committee to change it. There are no activities at this 
school that you like. Get to a Programs Board meeting or 
come and talk with us. If you want to volunteer and become 
more active in the Thousand Oaks community, talk with 
Janice Levine in the Community Service Center. You want 
to see policies changed in the residence halls or at least 
understand why they are there. Talk with your ARC, 
Stephanie Sims or Bill Stott. You wanted to see ASCLU 
divided into a Programs Board and a Senate — student 
leaders did it. I think you get the general idea. At CLU, you, 
and only you control your destiny — if you want to change 
it then do it. 

Fifth, no tradition? Whatever! We have heard time and 
rime again that CLU is lacking in tradition. Sometimes, 
we're not sure if students at CLU truly realize that they are 
lucky. After all, "at CLU we don't abide by tradition, we 
make tradition." This is a very truthful statement. One of us, 
that's me, Mike, graduated from an institution where in a 
sense tradition ran the school and changing anything from 
a policy to the time of year Parent's Weekend was going to 
be was a major decision that required a committee and a. 
vote of the president (well not quite that bad, but you get the 
point). AtCLU you can make an impact immediately — the 
only thing that is holding anyone back is the fact that there 
aren't more hours in the day. 

And finally, you only have four to five years to enjoy 
college and the rest of your life to do everything else. Take 
advantage of every opportunity that CLU affords you. If 
it's a matter of watching "ER"or going to The Need... 
record "ER" and go to The Need. You will only get as much 
out of your $ 19,000 as you put into it We suggest you milk 
CLU for all it's worth. 

We have but two things to conclude with: Programs 
Board is the Bomb, and it is always a good day to be a

Two Cal Lutheran seniors spend semester 

overseas; learn to live by a British motto 

If you are bored in London, you are bored of life 


Contributing Writers 

Have you ever had a beer during class 
with your professor? Or been taken on a pub 
crawl by your resident manager? Or been 
graded on going to the London Theatre? 

These are just a few of the reasons why 
the British life was so appealing to us and 
why we fell in love with the city. 

"How was London?" people ask us with 
sincere interest 

We try to answer them, but feel like we 
can't explain the whole semester in just a 
few sentences. 

So many emotions, people and experi- 
ences are tied up with London for us that it's 
hard to describe in words. 

Actually, we felt like we were dreaming 
the whole time because everything was so 

We started the semester full of excite- 
ment and with different expectations of 
British life. But no one told us we would 
have the best time of our lives. 

We lived in a house in downtown London 
with 30 other students from all over the 
United States. We came from all different 

environments and backgrounds. 

At first we felt like we were thrown 
together with no common interests and were 
expected to share our experiences in Lon- 
don together. 

But by the end of the semester, we fell 
like we were being torn apart from our 
closest lifelong friends as we said our 
goodbyes at the airport. 

We were told that we were coming to 
London to study and we thought most of our 
learning experiences would come from the 

We soon found out that the most learning 
we did was about ourselves, our culture and 
the British culture came from our outside 
experiences during our day-to-day activi- 

We were given three-day weekends so 
we could have the opportunity to travel. 

Our classes were structured in the tradi- 
tional British way in that we were respon- 
sible for learning the material and having 
one final exam. 

We didn't have any homework. This gave 
us time to really experience what London 
had to offer. 

One of the most popular quotes we heard 
was, "If you are bored in London, you are 

bored of life." This definitely typifies life in 

There was always something to do and 
something different to experience. From 
the pubs and clubs to the theatres and muse- 
ums, London had it all to offer. 

All we had to do was hop on the tube, the 
subway, or walk down the street and some- 
thing or someone would grab our attention. 

We were told to be wary of negative 
attitudes toward Americans, but we soon 
fell in love with the English attitude toward 

We experienced the British peoples' ac- 
ceptance of diversity to be a welcome dif- 
ference from what we were used to. 

As we traveled across Europe during our 
three-week spring break, we realized what 
being a foreigner felt like. 

For us, it was the first time that people 
looked at us differently when we walked 
down the streets. They also commented on 
our funny accents. 

It was the first time we had ever experi- 
enced culture shock. It was the first lime in 
our lives that we wished we knew another 
language and had paid attention in foreign 
language classes. 

These experiences have changed our 

Seniors Keller and Kriekard in Europe 

views today on how we look at other cul- 
tures and societies. 

We have come lo see thai differences are 
not wrong, but every society has something 
unique and beautiful to offer. 

If you ever have the opportunity to go 
abroad, take it. It was the best experience of 
our lives filled with memories and friends 
we will never forget. 

CLU student taught valuable lesson in 

Wales about American culture and attitudes 

Senior spends year in Wales, discusses personal 
conflicts with Americans' position internationally 


Contributing Writer 

It's really crazy how life works some- 
times. Just the other day I was complaining 
to my roommate about the fact that I had 
spent the entirety of last year in Wales and 
that no one (aside from close friends) had 
really asked me about it 

I got the standard "how was your trip" 
and "what was the beer like" questions, but 
nothing too substantial - until I was asked to 
write this article. 

So, how was my trip? It was exactly that 
- and I fell flat on my face on more than one 

At first, it was fun being referred to as 
"my friend Barb - the American." I'm as 
proud of my country as the next person and 
so this new label seemed to be a selling 
point as far as I was concerned. 

So there I would stand beaming, safe in 
the glow of American pride, as this hap- 
pened on several occasions, until I began 
noticing the disapproving murmuring 
around me. 

I began to realize that maybe being intro- 
duced as "the American" was not meant as 
a compliment Oh, I was angry! Just what 
was this inside joke? What was wrong with 

I began asking everyone that I knew and 
the responses I got were very enlightening. 

Phrases like "Bigger and better; world 
police; and eating for recreation" were 
among some of the most commonly heard. 
Also, "loud and obnoxious; conceited; and 
narrow-minded" made the list. 

Narrow-minded? That's funny ... of 
course, all of these phrases were followed 
with the very popular disclaimer - not you 
Barb, but some Americans. 

Needless to say, their responses really 
threw me - especially since the only people 
that I asked were ones that I had come to 
know and like from the beginning. 

It took me awhile to digest the idea that 
perhaps America was not the be-all-end-all 
to everyone. Why shouldn't it be? We are 
friendly and polite and very well off as a 

And exactly what is wrong with enjoying 
a good meal and telling people to "have a 
nice day?" There's another perspective 
flaw in our society - saying things that we 
don't really mean. 

I mulled this information over and over in 
my head and tried to think of ways to purify 
the American image in the eyes of my 
friends. Unfortunately, I often times found 
myself saving America's face at the ex- 
pense of my new Welsh home. 

Perhaps what was the most startling to 
me was when in my head, I loo began 
making notes of the "rude" American be- 
havior, and began cringing when I heard an 
American in a pub in Ireland telling the 
bartender, in his best southern drawl, that he 
too was Irish. 

I watched in awe as this little man behind 
the bar, eyes dancing, listened to yet an- 
other story of some man ' s great great grand- 
father and his trip to America during the 
potato famine. 

I did a complete turn around and began 
critiquing every American I saw for unbe- 
coming behavior. Everywhere I went, I 
heard Americans before I saw them - fur- 
thering my theory that perhaps we were so 
proud that we came across as condescend- 
ing when we tried to show interest in an- 
other culture. 

"Oh look honey, isn't that cute - the little 
Welsh woman on the corner selling sweat- 
ers made from sheep wool." How quaint. It 
seemed that I needed some sort of happy 

What it boils down to is that everyone has 
to make the best of what they have. If the 
best of what they have just happens to be 
better than a lot of other people's best, then 
it is up to them to handle it both humbly and 

I will make no apologies for being proud 
of the great nation that I live in. It may be 
chaotic and filled with tension and protests, 
and over weight people who have memo- 
rized the menu at Denny's, but it is my 
home and I will not ever deny that. 

I can now say, however, that America 
does have many flaws and that we are not as 
strong in some areas as are people of other 
nations. This was a wonderful revelation to 
me, and I cannot even begin to describe 
why. My trip to Wales was a wonderful, 
horrible, exciting, boring, challenging, hum- 
bling experience that may not be for every- 

I learned more about myself in one year 
than I have in years past, which in itself is 

Perhaps it was because I have never had 
to be alone with myself in an environment 
where I did not know where to go when I 
was feeling alone before - kind of like 
reliving my freshman year on a whole new 

I have a newfound respect for the Welsh

Marsac finds way to combine aspects of 
creativity in performance art productions 

Editor in Chief 

Sitting in a room with collages adorning 
the walls and bead curtains hanging from 
the windows, it is easy to see why Tricia 
Marsac can be called artistic and creative. 

Marsac, a drama and English major, is 
involved in many activities, especially in 
the drama department. She is the costume 
departmental assistant, light designer for 
" Androcles and the Lion," costume designer 
for "£De D6nde?"and she recently finished 
directing a Black Box production. 

"Advantage," the Black Box that she 
directed, choreographed and created with 
senior Tracy Bersley, portrayed the story of 
a rape victim who must deal with her 

"It's an issue that is close to many people 
even when they don't know it," Marsac 
says, adding "a lot of people, men and 
women, have been raped whether it's 
mentally or physically or emotionally." 

Marsac also says a person can talk to 
someone, but the feeling of rape never goes 

"When you have something that happens 
to you that is so tragic and you finally go to 
somebody and you tell them, a lot of times 

the common response is 'Well, just go talk 
to someone, figure it out and then you'll be 
all better.' But it never gets all better. 

Marsac uses this as the reason for the 
emotions never leaving in "Advantage." 
The emotions are something that are going 
to be there all the time as something the 
woman must deal with and "put in check," 
she says. 

In addition to this performance art piece, 
Marsac put on another one with senior 
Siana-Lea Gildard last fall called 
"Generation X." 

Marsac would like to continue working 
with performance art in the future. She 
would like to focus on it in graduate school. 

"I think I want to go to grad school in 
some sort of program that combines 
directing, designing, dancing, acting and 
writing all in one — some sort of combination 
of visual arts and theatre arts," she says. 

Marsac says she wants to continue writing 
with Gildard, her "Generation X" partner 
and roommate. The creative team has 
already come up with a name for themselves, 
Breathing Fire. 

"We want to put shows on that have a 
message by combining different forms of 
art and poetry," Marsac says. 

The duo will be presenting "Generation 

X" at the 1995 National Lutheran Student 
Movement Convention in December. 

Plans are also in the works for a workshop 
at Creative Options in the Spring. The 
workshop will involve performance art. 

As for where she wants to live when she 
is carrying out these plans, Marsac is looking 
toward the San Francisco area, but says she 
is also looking at Chicago because she is 
intrigued with the idea of going someplace 
like the Chicago Art Institute. 

If she went to the Institute, Marsac says 
she could work toward her B A in art. "Maybe 
I'll just go to school for the rest of my life," 
Marsac jokes. 

This interest she has in art has caused 
Marsac to sit in on several art classes at 
CLU. She sat in on Dr. Solom's drawing 
class her sophomore year and is now sitting 
in on a painting class taught by professor 
Higgins. The busy senior has a full load of 
credits and cannot take anymore, so she just 
sits in on these classes. 

Marsac summarizes her time in her 
painting class as "It's when I breathe." 

She also says, "You run around all day 
Much of Marsac's artistic creativity goes 
into the many art projects she takes on in 
order to decorate her room. Sophomore 

Patty McCleary, one of Marsac's 
roommates, calls these things "Tricia's 

Marsac also finds ways to keep busy 
outside of CLU. This past summer she had 
a internship working in the Probst Theatre 
at the Civic Arts Plaza. There, she worked 
as a stage worker. 

Because of her internship, she has been 
hired to do the same kind of work as she did 
over the summer as part of her internship. 

Marsac emphasizes that she would not 
want to continue manual labor in the theatre. 

She also kept herself busy over the 
summer working as an acting teacher 
assistant for a children's theatre workshop 
where she got to write plays with kids and 
perform them. 

McCleary calls her roommate Marsac 
"an inspiration" after living with her for a 
year and watching Marsac survive her many 

"Tricia is one of the most talented people 
I know. She has the ability to design every 
aspect of a theatre production-costume, 
sets, lights, everything; she's a talented 
artist. She's one of the best friends I could 
hope to deserve in life," Gildard says of her 
longtime roommate and friend.

Director of User Services 
Information Systems and Services 

Since last fall when we had a mere 50 
accounts on our primary email server, 
we have seen tremendous growth in 
requests for and use of CLUnet accounts. 
We have approximately 2,400 accounts: 
1,951 student accounts, 202 faculty 
accounts, 169 staff accounts and 89 
administrative accounts. 

ISS attempts to create accounts for 
new faculty, administrators and staff as 
we hear of new arrivals, and we welcome 
requests for accounts from all members 
of the CLU community (currently 
enrolled students, faculty, staff and 
administrators). Stop by the Library or 
request an account form by calling 493- 

Students obtain accounts by one of 
four methods. Some faculty ask ISS to 
create accounts for all students in a 
particular class and then proceed to 
require computer mediated 

An alternative is for faculty to direct 
students to go to the Library and request 
an account individually. 

In the Library, the Circ. Desk/ Access 
Services now asks students if they want 
an e-mail account when obtaining a 
library card. Students with lots of 
initiative just stop by the Library and 
request an account. 

Forty-four students have computers 
connected to CLUnet in dorm rooms. 
With a direct connection in the dorm 

room, students have access to all of the 
software, tools and resources found in 
the library and computer labs. 

The S80 cost for connecting a 
Windows computer to CLUnet from the 
dorms provides much faster access than 
dial-in alternatives. 

The dorm room phone line also 
remains open for calls while working on 
CLUnet. From a dorm connection, you 
are always guaranteed a connection 
unlike dialing in with a modem. 

Access time is also limited to one hour 
per day with a modem; there is not limit 
on connect time from a direct connection. 
We do not have a count for the number of 
students living in the dorms who have 
computers and choose to use modems to 
dial into our system. 

We also have over 150 commuter/ 
ADEP/graduate students who use our 
new dial in software to access CLUnet. 
This software offers a graphical user 
interface like we have in our offices, labs 
and classrooms (e.g., Eudora and 

The new dial in system serves thirty 
simultaneous sessions. We have nocount 
for commuter/ADEP/graduate students 
who use our old dial-in method. The old 
modem pool frequently gives a busy

When a student gets an account on 
Robles, that account may be accessed 
from any CLUnet connected computer - 
lab, dorm , classroom, or office or through 
dial in from remote sites - on-campus 
with a modem or off-campus in TO or 
anywhere in the world. 

As a personal observation in our

use email and Internet tools as often as

of what I observed students using before

Cal Lutheran's first employee still going 
strong; reminisces on school's first few years 


Staff Writer 

"I stood on deck the whole day and got 
a beautiful sunburn, but it was so exciting, 
so exciting." Ethel Beyer-first employee 
of CLU-smiles as she describes the transit 
through the Panama Canal with her father 
in 1924, when she was 16. When she was 
17, she told him she was ready to work. 

Though her father wanted her to go to 
college, they compromised when they saw 
an advertisement to work part time, earn 
tuition and go to business school. 

"I've always been told I was indepen- 
dent. I don't know whether it was a good 
thing or not, but I don't think it's done me 
too much harm." 

Within two weeks, Beyer had a job with 
an independent oil company that was to 
last 27 years. 

"I got tremendous experience there," 
she says, adding that when she first got the 
job, "I didn't even know how to make out 
a deposit slip." 

"We got a bid to supply the city of Los 
Angeles with oil and gasoline, and that 
wasa big thing, especially for a pioneering 
company. I didn't know anything about 
billing, I just had to take it on myself. I did 
the billing and the first month we got a 
compliment on the billing. Well 1 tell you 
that was another feather in my cap." 

After retiring from the oil company in 
1952, Beyer soon became restless, feeling 
she was too young to be "quitting." A talk 
with her pastor led her to Dr. Orville Dahl. 

"He asked me to write to Dr. Dahl who 
had been called, so to speak, to come from 
Minneapolis out to California to establish 
a college. I wrote to him, and he wrote 
jack, and asked me to work with him, and 
that impressed me, to work with him, not 
for him." 

Even though Beyer had been in Califor- 
nia long enough to know about "pipe 
dreams," she took the dare to write Dahl — 
and to accept the challenge of starting a 
new college. 

After the property for CLU was donated 
by Richard Pederson in 1957, Beyer moved 
with her mother from Van Nuys to Thou- 
sand Oaks. 

Her father, who served as Chief Petty 
Officer to "Fighting Bob Evans" in the 
Spanish- American war, died in 1943. She 
doesn't know if her father ever forgave her 
for not going to college; Beyer says she 
never asked him. 

Once in Thousand Oaks, the work be- 
gan in earnest. "I think I wore out more 
shoes than I wore out in my life, because 
we were in the ranch house, and all activ- 
ity was going on down at the far end of the 
campus where the old chicken coops were." 

Running back and forth from ranch 
house to ch icken coops was just the beg i n - 
ning for Beyer. 

Fetching chicken dinners for Regents' 
meetings and keeping them warm in the 
oven , get u ng lunches for guests and clean- 
ing up afterwards, buying Christmas pre- 
sents for the children of faculty and staff, 
even making curtains for the kitchen was 
all part of starting up California Lutheran 

And then there was the weather. 'The 
first year we came out, we came in January 

Ethel Beyer 

(1958) and in February we had rains like 
California hadn't seen in a long, long time. A 
couple of times I had to stop on the high- 
way — then it wasn't freeway, of course, it 
was highway — because the rain was so hard 
you could hardly see." 

Once on campus, the adventure wasn't 
over for Dahl's assistant. "Then I would start 
down the road and would get part way down , 
and then the car would usually turn sideways 
and slip down to where the creek is. Then I 
could straighten out and come up again." 

Packing books into the rumble seat of her 
1957 Studebaker, "tomato soup red with 
Navajo white top" was never mentioned in 
the job description. But since the post office 
didn't have a truck, it was up to her to go into 
town to pick them up. 

"Well, a couple of times I remember Dr. 
Helmut Haeussler, who still lives at the other 
side of campus, especially his books — there 
were so many of them and they were so 
heavy. Then some of the professors lived in 
Kramer Court, and so you had to unload the 
books into Kramer Court That was quite an 

California Lutheran College was different 
and that is what attracted pioneering faculty 
and students to the campus.

when we first came out here there were about

25 houses in Thousand Oaks and three of 
them were on campus," Beyer says, 
"Moorpark was just a two lane road, and 
fields of grain or weeds, whatever you want 
to call them. It was very rural , and I would 
think that had something to do with the 
people wanting to be in something fresh and 
new, and not city. But even then UCLA and 
USC were big institutions, and this was 
going to be different." 

This school was unique. Dahl went to an 
auction and returned with a soda fountain - 
complete with marble counter top, fixtures, 
booths and seats - to provide a place for the 
students to eat. He enlisted the chef and 
owner of the Redwood Lodge to come over 
and cook the meals. 

Several walnut groves on the campus/ 
ranch land were harvested and processed to 
be given as gifts and to supplement the 
college's income. 

One young grove sat on the lot of the 
future administration building. When the 
time came to build, the school offered the 
three-year-old trees to the community. 

Beyer laughs as she says, 'That was sort 
of a fun thing too because people would 
come up and they would hang sweaters on, 
or had children stand by a tree here, while 
they went and dug up another tree, and we 
had a couple of old ladies get into an argu- 

ment about which tree was theirs." 

She remembers the many changes the 
campus has gone through, from gatherings 
under a big tent with stagecoach and 
haywagon rides to master plans, a chapel 
and architecture. But most of all, she re- 
members the people. 

"We just this past week (Sept. 10, 1995) 
lost one of our very first professors, Dr. 
Walter Magnuson, who was in chemistry. 
When we were still in the office in Holly- 
wood, this one week it looked like we 
weren ' t going to get any paychecks because 
there just wasn't that much money coming 
in ... and so we thought, well, this week 
we'd go without pay. This Dr. Magnuson 
came in and left a check for $2,500, and that 
just amazed me, because at that time, in 
1958, that was a lot of money." 

From the beginning, Beyer knew CLU 
and the people who were dedicated to build- 
ing a Lutheran college were special. 

"When I was invited to come and be a part 
of the university, I felt very humble about it, 
because I had not been to college myself. I 
had not been a graduate, which is no credit 
to me, I guess, but I just felt very humbled 
about having been asked to be part of it. 
And I still feel humble about it." 

She was the first person to see the Alma 
Mater song when Dahl and Dr. Bob 
Zimmerman came in to the office to have 
her type it up. To this day, she says she gets 
"weepy" each time she goes to sing it. 

She watched and worked as financing 
came in and building began. She had the 
satisfaction of seeing off the first graduat- 
ing class at CLC and she felt the sadness of 
saying goodbye to Dahl. 

"He was a very special person, and I 
know that had he stayed a few years longer, 
we would have had a lot more at Cal 
Lutheran. Not that we don't today, but a lot 
earlier. He was just that kind of person. In 
fact, he never wanted the presidency. They 
had to kind of fight to get him to take that. " 

"Maybe I was wrong in not doing some- 
thing else, but that is where my niche turned 
out to be, and where I stayed." 

Beyer started as administrative assistant 
to Dahl and when he finally took the presi- 
dency she went with him as his assistant 

After Dr. Raymond Olsen came, changes 
where made and she was going to leave. But 
administration decided to start an office for 
the faculty secretary, and that is where she 

At65, facing mandatory retirement, Beyer 
leftthe faculty secretary's office, but before 
she could have her retirement party she 
went back to working in President Mark 
Matthews' office. 

Two years ago, after having a heart at- 
tack, Beyer almostrelired again. Thencame 
an offer from Dennis Gillette's office to 
come and work with him in the Business 
Office four half days a week. 

"Anything I can be a part of to correct or 
help, I'm willing to do it. I don't know that 
I have been an instrument in doing very 
much of that, but every now and then some- 
body comes back and says, 'you are the first 
person I spoke to, and you did a lot for me.' 
That makes me feel good. It's just some- 
thing that I don't think superiors do enough 
of, is tell people how much they are appre- 
ciated. It's funny, I don't know-but it's all 
part of life. I try to live it as best I can."

The California Lutheran University 
Kingsmen Quartet has been in existence 
since the college first opened its doors to 

The quartet is made up of four men 
selected each year through competitive 
auditions. This season, the quartet is almost 
completely new. 

Three of the four members graduated last 
year. This year's members are first tenor- 
Drew Maxwell, second tenor-Reid 
Chobanian, baritone-Peter Berg, and bass- 
Kevin Wade. 

"I feel that this year's quartet has an 
excellent blend and has potential to be one 
of the best quartets I've heard," said Dr. 
Wyant Morton, music professor and choral 

The next major performance of the quartet 
at CLU will be for the Christmas concerts, 
Dec. 1-3, although the music department 
says, "Keep your eyes open around the 
holiday season for singing around campus." 

The Kingsmen Quartet is no small project- 

they don't just sing at their concerts. They 
travel to different churches and perform at 
various places around Southern California. 

They also travel with the Admissions and 
Alumni offices to recruit new students, sing 
at office parties, half-time performances at 
sporting events, and choral concerts. 

The quartet has consistently made 
recordings as well, whether they were on 
cassettes in past years, or the upcoming 
project of a CD in the next couple of years. 

There is also as female quartet. "For the 
past three years we have had a women's 
quartet which is also very good and makes 
the men's and women's quartets better 
because of their friendly competition," 
Morton said. 

This year's women's quartet is made up 
of first soprano-Pamela Dumler, second 
soprano-Tracey Bersley, first alto-Laura 
Richard, and second alto-Bethanie Myrvold. 

The women are looking for a name. "They 
will not be called the Regal quartet," Morton 

They are seeking for suggestions, in 
which the winner of the name selected will 
receive a private concert from them.

celebrates 'El 
Dia de los 


Staff Writer 

A celebration of "El Dia de los 
Muertos," literally translated as "The 
Day of the Dead," will be sponsored 
by Multicultural Services today at 
6:30 p.m. in the SUB. 

According to Spanish professor 
Magdalena Teichman. the Mexican 
holiday is "a celebration in which 
family and friends come together in 
the memory of their ancestors." 

The tradition is celebrated from 
the night of Oct. 31 to the night of 
Nov. 2. 

Teichman explained that in 
preparation for this celebration the 
living make big altars on which they 
serve all that the dead enjoyed when 
they were living. 

"When the spirits of the children 
come, which is the night of the 31st, 
altars are decorated with pan de 
muerto, chocolate, toys and sugar 
canes," she said. 

The professor explained how the 
altars are changed in preparation for 
the coming of the adults. Tamales, 
mole, and cigarettes are just a few of 
the things that the living put on the 
altars as a way of welcoming their 

Teichman also mentioned that it is 
a tradition in the urban areas to scatter 
"centesuchi," special leaves, from the 
cemetery to their houses so that the 
dead can find their homes. 

"The aroma will guide them to the 
different houses," Teichman said. 

"They actually don't eat the foods 
that are at the altars, they eat it by the 
aroma," she explained. 

She added that after the dead leave 
the living do what is called "levari tar 
el muerto." At this point the dead 
have come, eaten and enjoyed, so the 
living can eat what they call the 
leftovers so the food doesn't go to 

At the Dia de los Muertos 
celebration today a poem andcostume 
contest will take place where prizes 
will be given out for the best of each. 

The poems are called "calaveras," 
which Dr. Ron Teichman, Spanish 
professor, said are "poems 
incorporating metaphors of death, 
skulls, skeletons, and ghosts that are 
read at parties." 

He also said that anyone thinking 
about dressing up for the costume 
contest needs to come dressed up in a 
costume that is Mexican related. 

If anyone is interested in 
participating in the event and would 
like ideas for a costume you may 
contact the Teichmans at ext. 3378. 

Baha'i religion looks at social 
issues from a spiritual perspective 

Professor puts her beliefs to use in the classroom 


Contributing Writer 

When Dr. Hoda Mahmoudi was 16 years 
old she made an important decision. She 
decided on her own that she wanted to be a 
member of the Baha'i faith. 

Mahmoudi, who is a sociology professor 
at CLU, explained that Baha'is believe that 
by the age of 1 5 "a child can accept spiritual 
responsibility." They are then encouraged 
to make an "independent investigation of 
'truth'" to determine what is right for them. 

Now, as one of the approximately 100 
membersof the Baha'i faith in the Thousand 
Oaks community, she is able to put her faith 
into action. 

In any area where there are nine or more 
adults of the Baha'i faith a "Local Spiritual 
Assembly" is formed as a governing body. 

The assembly makes decisions through 
Consultation, the practice of working for 
consensus that allows differing ideas, 
without the conflict of personalities. 

Mahmoudi said she tries to "create 
consultation in the classroom," adding that 
the way people interact in the classroom 
"reflects the outward societal patterns." 

She said she tries to teach students to 
listen and respect each others, ideas, not 
just tolerate them. 

The three main tenants of the Baha'i faith 
are oneness of humanity, God and religion. 

Oneness of humanity dispels the idea of 
categorizing people into racial groups. 
Instead, it focuses on the importance of 
people becoming aware of their connection 
to the one human family. 

Oneness of God acknowledges that all 
worship is directed to one spiritual being 

regardless of the names ascribed 
to God, such as Allah or Yahweh. 

Oneness of religion sums up 
their belief that all religions are 
part of the progressive revelation 
of the religion of God. 

Members of the Baha'i faith 
believe that Buddha, Abraham, 
Moses, Jesus and Mohammed 
have all been important prophets 
in the evolution of religion. 

However, they believe that 
BahaVllah, who founded the 
Baha'i faith as an offshoot of Islam 
in 1844, is the manifestation of 
God for the present age. 

Mahmoudi said she is able to 
easily integrate the Baha'i 
emphasis on social issues with A common Baha'i symbol representing the

Students find Common Ground at 
informal communion services 

Weekly gathering offers chance for spirtual renewal 


Staff Writer 

Quietly gathering in the Chapel for a time 
of relaxation and spiritual renewal, about 
20 students meet each Wednesday at 10 
p.m. for Common Ground, an informal 
communion service. 

Rich Gregory, senior, said Common 
Ground wasstarted this year togive students 
a time to come together and share their faith 
in an informal setting. 

"It provides a peaceful time where all 
people can share their faith no matter what 
their beliefs are," he said. 

Student sharing and involvement is key 
to Common Ground' s success, Gregory said . 
In the half-hour long service students give 
communion to each other and select songs 

He leads the group in singing and handles 
most of the music. Although traditional and 

contemporary Christian music are played at 
the service, Gregory stressed that Common 
Ground also offers other types of musical 
styles and themes. 

"We also sing songs from Swahili , Native 
Americans and other songs that apply to all 
people," he said. 

Gregory said he hopes to perform more 
spiritual "rock songs," so that all students 
can identify with something in the service. 

One of the other ways that they relate to 
each other is through "student sharing." 
Each week, a different person shares an 
inspirational or personal experience with 
the rest of the group. 

Gregory said that student sharing is an 
important aspect of Common Ground 
because it encourages students to be open 
and share their intimate thoughts and 
feelings to one another. 

"Anybody can get up and share an 
experience," he said. 

Laurie Segal, senior, said she attends 
Common Ground meetings because itoffers 
an intimate and open environment to express 
her faith. 

"Common Ground is more intimate than 
[traditional] chapel service because you 
can be open and share your problems," she 

"It's like a big group of friends, and you 
walk out feeling good," she added. 

Gregory said he wants to expand the 
service to include "Taize," a type of 
communion based on silent prayers and 
peaceful songs. 

"Taize comes from French monks who 
read scriptures and have silent prayers," he 

Common Ground is meaningful to 
Gregory, he said, because "it's a time for 
me to relax and think about the important 
things in life. It's also a time for me to give 
to God."

Poetry Shop provides unique opportunity 

for Thousand Oaks residents of all ages 

Local man brings dream to life after disgust with L.A. 
scene; offers chance for amateur poets 

Staff Writer 

Writing a poem is something almost ev- 
eryone has done at least once: Milestones, 
turning points, bliss and catastrophe have 
been poured onto paper in an effort to 
express and heal. 

The Poetry Shop, in Thousand Oaks fills 
a distinctive need by offering an outlet for 
people who enjoy writing poetry to share 
with others or just listen. 

Poet John P. Gorham opened The Poetry 
Shop on Thousand Oaks Boulevard after 
his and other poets' efforts to help a home- 
less woman and her child revealed a desire 
for a gathering place. 

"When you share it (poetry) with other 
people, it goes to another height. I couldn't 
live my life any other way," Gorham said. 

The closest place for poets and writers to 
meetbefore The Poetry Shop was in Agoura. 

Gorham grew up in Thousand Oaks and 
feels the town should be able to support his 
venture. "People don't slow down enough 
in life, but when they stop to read a poem , it 
makes them slow down," he said. 

Encounters in Los Angeles helped 
Gorham by showing him what not to do. 
"They were performing, no feelings, no 
emotion. People need to use their own 
voice," he added. 

The Poetry Shop provides a setting of 
ease and comfort, of camaraderie and natu- 
ralness, essential to the artists who express 
themselves through poetry. "Everyone can 
just come in and be themselves, to be real 
and be themselves," Gorham said. 

And it is real. The people who gather for 
readings at the shop defy generalization. 
Talent, age, and motivation differ for every 
individual seated at the white plastic tables. 

"We have a nice balance of age groups," 
Gorham says as he hosts the Wednesday

Sports Editor 

The Kingsmen soccer season ended this 
past week with SCIAC Playoff Tournament 

The team wrapped up its first ever SCI AC 

Championship last Wednesday with a 
victory over Pomona-Pitzer, 3-1. 

However, the team was denied a chance 
to continue playing as they were not selected 
to compete in the NCAA Division III 
national tournament. 

"The season was definitely a success," 
said senior fullback Dan Barrie, noting "it 
was a huge improvement (in record) with 
basically the same players as last year." 

The team finished the season with a record 
of 1 1-6-2, posting a complete turnaround 
from last years 6-14 showing. 

The team was very close to earning a bid 
to the nationals, however, they may have 
lost that bid Saturday in a 3-3 tie with 

The game was a huge disappointment for 
the team, as they took a 2-0 lead on two Jan 
Hammervold goals late into the game. 

However, Claremont scored a goal with 
eight minutes remaining and another with 
just fourteen seconds left. 

After the teams traded goals in the 
overtime period , the Kingsmen had to accept 
another tough break. 

"We may have been 14 seconds from 
nationals," said junior midfielder Frode 
Davanger, referring to the final goal in the 
Claremont game. 

One more victory could have pushed the 
team into postseason as the team that went 
over CLU posted a record of only 12-6-1, 
barely beuer than the Kingsmen 's. 

"It was hard to come this far and not go to 
nationals," said Davanger. 

Junior defender Josh Parker summed up 
the whole situation perfectly: "I don't think 
we should've gone to the tournament, but 
we could' ve." 

The team lost a lot of close games this 
season, including one goal losses to 
nonconference opponents Azusa Pacific and 
Chapman, and the tough tie with Claremont. 
"We started off pretty weak and that 
killed us when it came down to the playoff 
decision," said junior midfielder Edwin 

However, the team is happy with their 

"The main aim of the season was to win 
SCIAC and we accomplished that," said 

"Once SCIAC was won though, we were 
hoping for nationals," he added. 

"Basically we are just happy with what

The competition should be prepared for 
Alexi Sahagian, a CLU senior who is 
planning to bring home the first place trophy 
from the World Championships for speed 
water-skiing in Australia. 

Last year, Sahagian was not able to 
compete after a severe knee injury in the 
beginning of the season, but this year he 
plans to make-up for lost time. 

Sahagian left the racing circuit holding 
fifth place in the nation for his class but 
expects to fulfill his ultimate goal in 1996. 

"I want to win the championship for the 
United Slates of America," Sahagian says, 
adding, "this year is my comeback year." 

Sahagian is not an amateur to the world 
of racing. With a father that once held the 
world title, he knows what it lakes to be the 

"Everything has to hold together, it takes 
the whole team," he says. 

Each team is made up of a driver, an 
observer, and a skier. The driver for 
Sahagian is his father, Henry Sahagian. 

"He was the best water skier, but now he 
is the best driver in the world," he adds. 

Sean Cassar, a family friend occupies the 
passenger seat and assists the team in speed 
and direction. 

"My dad is pushing me and training me, 
he is my driving force," says Sahagian. 

He and his team will begin intense 
practices at Castaic Lake in December in 
order to prepare for the beginning of the 
season in March. 

Sahagian says, "I was short-changed last 
year because of my knee, I have so much 
support this year, everyone is really gung- 

When Sahagian appears at a race he is 
recognized for his skiing ability, but also 
for being one of the few competitors to 
build his own racing boat. 

He and his father bought the hull of a 
Schiada and built the engine to meet the 
specific needs of their purpose. Believing 
this may be what gives him the edge over 
the competition, he says, "The boat must be 
good in order for the skier to be good." 

Building a race boat is one of the many 
goals Sahagian hoped to accomplish as a 
young boy. Silling at the water's edge he 
remembers saying, "One day I am going to 
build a race boat so we can race." 

Racing is exacdy what Sahagian has been 
doing for the past 10 years. Competitions 
have taken him to Lake Havasu, the 
Colorado River, Lake Mead, and New 
Zealand. Depending on ihe race, he can be 
skiing at speeds in excess of 80 miles per 

Sahagian says, "I can ski to Catalina 
(Island) in 20 minutes, going 75 miles per 
hour in the ocean." 

Before he heads for the World 
Championships in Australia, Sahagian must 
prove himself here in the slates. 

The opening of the season is in Parker, 
Arizona, the first weekend in March, where 
he will remind the other skiers of his 
strength and endurance. He says, 'Thope to 
be two minutes ahead of everyone else." 

Being able to ski in 25 to75 mile 
marathons, at a speed of 90 miles an hour, 
will definitely prepare Sahagian for the 
ultimate test in Australia. 

"Over the years, with my experience, I 
want to be World Champion." 

He will definitely give the competition 
something to think while trying to get to 

Kingsmen struggle in 9-0 defeat 

Mistakes destroy chances; SCIAC title doubtful 


Sports Editor 

The Kingsmen football team hit a bump 
on their miracle road to the SCIAC 
Championship Saturday with an ugly 9-0 
loss to Pomona-Pitzer. 

It was the first time the Kingsmen had 
been shutout since 1991. 

The loss all but destroys the teams chances 
with two games in their league schedule 
remaining against the two top teams, 
Redlands and La Verne. 

The game at Pomona featured a terrible 
performance which included seven 
turnovers, eight penalties totalling 85 yards, 
and a bad night from the offense. 

The main highlight for the Kingsmen (3- 
3-1, 3-1) was a strong defensive 
performance, holding the Sagehens to three 
field goals despite being on the field for 82 
plays because of the offensive bumbling. 

"We played great defensively, but the 
offense just killed us, "said senior defensive 
end Matt Johnson. 

"Every lime we'd stop them, our offense 
would lurn the ball over again and we'd 

have to go right back out there," he added. 

The offense was led by Fredrik Nanhed, 
who continued his tremendous streak with 
1 56 yards on 23 carries. 

However, despite three separate runs of 
44, 35, and 36 yards, he failed to get in the 
end zone. 

"We didn't execute offensively," said 
Nanhed, adding, "we could have played a 
lot better." 

He did have a 19-yard touchdown run 
called back in the fourth quarter, which 
would have put the Kingsmen within two 
with 1 1 minutes remaining. 

The main problem on the offense, 
however, was junior quarterback Ryan 
Huisenga, who reverted to his early season 
form , completing as many passes to Sagehen 
defenders as he did lo his own team. 

He may have been too excited for the 
game, bui he struggled throughout the 
evening, completing only 5 of 17 passes 
for 63 yards while throwing five 

"Ryan was just trying to make too much 
happen," said coach Joe Harper. 

Huisenga had put together several solid 

games in a row, and definitely was a vital 
part of the three game winning streak, but it 
was just not his night. 

The Kingsmen also had to deal with 
several questionable calls by the officials. 

"There were a lot of penalties," said 
Nanhed, adding "I don't know how fair 
some of them were, but when you start 
getting on the judge, he keeps going against 

Overall, the game was dominated by 
Pomona, despite the close final score. 

The Kingsmen were outgained by over 
100 total yards, they only gained seven first 
downs, and they fumbled the ball five times, 
losing two of those. 

Saturday, the Kingsmen play their last 
home game against the University of 
Redlands at 1 p.m. 

Their final game is Nov. 1 1 at La Verne, 
the top SCIAC team. 

"We have some tough games coming up, 
but we will still play hard," said Johnson. 

In order to have any shot at the SCIAC 
title, the Kingsmen must play iwo great 
games in the last week of the season and 
hope for the best.

Ray resigns from ICC 
representative position 

Programs Board seeks student involvement 


Staff Writer 

The ASCLU Programs Board meeting 
was a mixed bag of upcoming events, event 
ideas and regrets. 

Desta Ronning, Programs Board director, 
was sad to inform the membership that as of 
Nov.l , C.J. Ray, ICC representative to the 
board, was resigning for personal reasons. 

The board must now initiate the process 
of appointing someone to fill Ray 's position. 
Those interested should contact someone 
on the Programs Board so they might fill 
out the application and begin the process. 

The ASCLU Executive cabinet met with 
some of the university regents last week, 
and reported that a leadership presentation 
from one of the regents had been scheduled 
and that the Regent's plan for the university 
is to continuously plan, fundraise, and 
construct new buildings. 

The next building is expected to be the 
new humanities building, which has a model 
in the Business Office. 

The Programs Board is doing some things 

to strongly encourage student involvement. 
The minutes and agendas of the Board are 
on display in the meeting room of the SUB. 

Also, the board is considering having 
"traveling" meetings once a month, meaning 
the meetings would be held in different 
residence halls in an effort to encourage 
student involvement. 

A Christmas Bus is also being considered 
The board would decorate a bus and tour the 
Christmas lights and decorations in the 
community. Also a reader board is being 
considered to display the news and also 
allow for the university to enter in personal 

The Board is also considering the purchase 
of some videocameras so campus events 
could be taped and shown in the cafeteria or 
other places around campus. 

The Senate is asking the Programs Board 
for $1000 to go into the printing and 
duplicating fund to cover some costs that 
they didn't anticipate having. 

At Large Representative Justin Knight 
jokingly said, "Would it be wrong to tell 
them to fundraise?"

The idea of affirmative action literally 
means "positive or constructive steps," 
Richard Ferrier said while debating against 
affirmative action. 

Ferrier is a teacher at Thomas Aquinas 
College in Santa Paula and is an advocate 
of the California Civil Rights Initiative 

The speaker for affirmative action was 
Joe Hicks, executive director of the 
Multicultural Collaborative of Los Angeles, 
which is an organization that seeks solutions 
for inter-ethnic tensions. 

Ferrier was the first speaker in the debate. 
He stated that the CCRI looks at a particular 
set of these "steps," and proh ibi is affirmative 

He also said the everyday person views 
affirmative action as "a list of policies in 
which one individual applicant for a job or 
participation in public benefit in the state of 
California or in the United States is preferred 

over another on the basis of race, gender, or 

He also commented that the university 
system is being damaged by the "buy-off 
of affirmative action, since so many 
universities secretly hold it. 

"I think CCRI will be passed," he said. 

Ferrier explained that the U.S. has 
problems and that we must look at these 
problems and not this "band-aid." 

Hicks continued the debate by asking the

One of the main reasons earthquakes 
are very difficult to predict, Jones said, is 
what geologically happens for big 
earthquakes happens for small ones. 

With so many earthquakes in varying 
size, it would be very difficult for 
Southern California to figure out what 
size and when an earthquake is going to 
hit, she said. 

"What controls how big or how little

she said, adding that this makes size 
virtually impossible to predict. 

"Emotionally we want predictability 
because it is the unpredictability that 
makes us scared," Jones said. 

Kevles dismisses potential problems 
of genetic engineering for future 

Human Genome Project brings benefits to society 


News Editor 

It is important not to become absorbed 
with the exaggeration of fears due to genetic 
engineering said Dr. Daniel J. Kevles at the 
Stoner Clark Lecture in the Samuelson 
Chapel on Monday morning. 

Kevles, professor of Humanities at 
California Institute of Technology spoke of 
the recent advances of human genetic 

"Changes are wonderful, their exciting 
and their prospects are rich," Kevles said. 

He said the knowledge we are gaining 
through genetic engineering will 
revolutionize our understanding of the 
human makeup. 

Kevles said these changes are frightening 
to people, but must be done. 

"They (changes) are so beneficial, that 
they make people nervous," he said. 

Kevles explained the purpose of the 
Human Genome Project and its benefits to 

The project was proposed in 1988 in 
Europe. It was to be completed in 2005, but 
the project is ahead of schedule and should 
be done by 2002. The purpose of the project 
is to achieve a complete map and complete 
sequence of all human genes. 

In doing mis, the base pairs of genes must 
be examined. Kevles said there are 3 billion 
base pairs. 

"Knowing the order of base pairs is 
fundamental to knowing the nature of the 
human genome," he said. 

The Human Genome Project will bring 
great benefits to the scientific community. 

"It will enable us to enhance our genetic 
fate," Kevles said, adding "characteristics 
of mind arid behavior can also be explained." 

Then Kevles addressed the genetic

studying of the Nazis in Germany during 

He said the research done in Nazi 
Germany was "very similar to research 
going on in the U.S. and Britain." 

Kevles said the genetic movement in 
Germany reached into euthanasia saying, 
"It became a policy for worthless Jews." 

He also said that Singapore adopted 
incentives to increase the birthrate of 
educational women. President Franklin D. 
Rooseveltalso deplored the low birthrate of 
uppermiddleclass women. These examples 
show that human genetics has already been 
changed by the world. 

Kevles said genetic engineering is not a 
problem for the future. 

Gene therapy is already being used by 
physicians and has proved to be an effective 
form of therapy Kevles added. 

"It is doubtful advances in genetics will 

lead to the creation of a super race," he said. 

One potential problem of genetic 
engineering is that insurance policies can 
get a hold of information and people with a 
high risk of sickness, disease or early death, 
will be discriminated against by having to 
pay a high risk policy. 

On the other hand, knowingly, "high risk 
policy holders would be taxing low risk 
holders," Kevles said. Kevles offered the 
answer of universal health coverage. 

As far as laws dealing with potential 
genetic engineering problems, Kevles sees 
no need to adopt laws now. 

"I don 't think its wise to make policies for 
technology that doesn't exist," he said, 
adding, "that can lead to irrelevant

CLU welcomed over 100 people for the 
annual Parent's Weekend. Families and 
students were given an opportunity to 
socialize with one another while enjoying 
the numerous activities planned for the 

Carmen Mummy, Alumni Relations, 
organized the event with Brian McCoy and 
Becky Townsend. A great deal of planning 
went into the weekend to ensure the success 
of the weekend. 

Carmen Mummy said, "We are more 
organized this year for the parents." 

Parent's Weekend attracted a lot more 
people this year added Mummy, "We have 
a much belter turn out than usual." 

The planned activities gave parents an 
opportunity to get a feel for the audience 
and a look at the future of CLU. 

The weekend began on Friday evening at 
President Luedtke's residence where parents 
were encouraged to meet with members of 

the Parent's League Steering Committee. 
The master plan for CLU was on exhibit for 
everyone to see. 

Saturday began with a continental 
breakfast served in the cafeteria. Later, 
parents were able to speak with 
representatives from Career Planning and 
Placement or discover the importance of 
CLUnet on campus. 

By afternoon, families gathered in Buth 
Park for the tailgate party in preparation of 
the football game. 

Sunday brought the end of a successful 
Parent ' s Weekend at the close of the Worship 
services in Samuelson Chapel. 

Families enjoyed the opportunity to visit 
with the students and faculty. 

"It's a great way to gain information 
about academ ic programs and see the school 
from a student's perspective," said attendee 
Connie Tushla. The weekend enabled 
parents to get the feel of the unique 
experience available at CLU. 

Another attendee Judy Dumler said, "We 
can see what is here and you can't really 
know a place unless you are there."

Singing in the Sprinklers 

Just a few days ago, Southern California 
was blessed with its first few days of rain 
since summer. 

Apparently no one noticed, or else no one 

The sprinklers came on as they always do, 
watering various sections of the campus in 
random patterns. 

CLU is trying to establish some tradition 
for a fairly young school. Since Cal Lu 
didn't want to copy any other educational 
institute, new ones were created. 

It seems that one such tradition is waste. 
California may not be in a drought anymore, 
but it still seems wrong to waste valuable 

Maybe there is something to horticulture 
that we don 't understand, but we were unable 
to come up with an obvious answer as to why 
the grass would need more water. 

Even in times of heavy downpours, the 
sprinkler system comes on like clockwork. 

It is most likely that it is on an automatic 
system, but we find it hard to believe that 
there is not some sort of override command. 

In fact, the sprinkler system is probably the 
most dependable thing on campus, next to 
the cafeteria serving Mexican food about 15 
out of every 19 meals a week. 

The administration tells us that there is 
never enough money to do what needs to be 
done. Is it possible that money could be 
saved if it weren't spent on unnecessary 

Overall, we have been impressed with the 
maintenance of CLU. It is true that we have 
one of the best looking campuses around. 

Yet there is something very unappealing 
about a 10-foot- wide mud hole right in the 
middle of a lawn. 

Let's recap. Water is a valuable resource 
and the school wastes it. 

Money is a scarce commodity and if it is 
squandered, it is lost. 

Grassy areas can only absorb so much 
water before they convert to mud. We highly 
doubt the university needs these mud pits 
since professional mud wrestling 
championships aren 't in the immediate plans 
for CLU. 

In conclusion, we can't think of one good 
reason not to turn off the sprinkler system 
when it rains. Maybe we're not seeing 
something, but we think it's just the students' 
tuition money that's going down the drain.

Vice President for Enrollment and Student Life 

Athletic teams strive for iL Political campaigns work for 
iL Even colleges and universities need it. The "it" is 
momentum, that impetus that shows the world things are 
happening and progress is underway. CLU has got it. 

If anyone needed reminders that CLU is a university on 
the move, recent events have provided ample evidence. 
Athletics provide an easy starting point. As Bruce Bryde, 
our new athletic director, has said, CLU does better than we 
have any right to expect 

Just look at some of the highlights in the record: baseball 
is 72- 12 in SCI AC play over the last four seasons with four 
consecutive NCAA playoffs and two College World Se- 
ries; the golf team won both SCI AC and NCAA Division 
III championships in '93 and '94; men's basketball has had 
three NCAA playoff appearances in the 1990s and is 62-18 
overall since 1993; the women's basketball team was #1 in 
scoring (in the nation!) in 1995 with a 23-3 record and first 
place in SCIAC; Softball has had a 44-4 record in the last 
two seasons with conference championships back-to-back 
and NCAA playoffs in '92, '94 and '95; volleyball was 12- 
this year, repeating as SCIAC champs, and the team goes 
on to the NCAA West Regional playoffs starting this 
Friday; meanwhile, football has had a 4- 1 season in SCIAC 
this year and plays for the conference championship this 
week as well! 

How can our teams compile such impressive records 
with often less-than-adequate facilities? How is it that over 
20percentof CLU students are involved in varsity athletics 
and still manage to maintain respectable grades? There 
must be something in this community that encourages 
students to become involved and to strive to do their best in 
every arena. The ASCLU has always involved a lot of our 
students, but this year's re-organization seems to have 
multiplied the number of actively involved students. And 
the new Programs Board has so many events going on that 
everyone is standing up and taking notice. Similarly, Resi- 
dence Life has more going on than ever before. With 
housing occupancy at 97 percent of capacity (up from 
85percent last year), there are more students around that 
are active and involved! Just witness Homecoming activi- 
ties, the recent Mosaic festival, Dia de los Muertos, out- 
standing music concerts, the excellent production of £De 
Donde?, and many more events. The danger here is that by 
listing only a few highlights I am overlooking many more! 

The experts say that good communities have at least 

seven characteristics, and I see them demonstrated on 
our campus almost daily. First, good communities incor- 
porate and value diversity. Just a short list of our 
multicultural activities shows this. Second, good commu- 
nities have a shared culture, and events that draw a broad 
cross-section of students, faculty and staff - such as this 
fall's superb lecture series focusing on leadership - are 
examples. Good communities foster internal communica- 
tion, and the constantly-improving Echo is obvious. Per- 
haps notas visible butcertainly profound in its implications 
is CLUnet, which is changing the ways in which we all 
learn and communicate. Good communities also promote 
caring, trust and teamwork. Is anyone not aware of our 
outstanding Community Service Center, Habitat for 
Humanity and Rotaract, or the Lord of Life congregation 
and its Global Peace and Justice committee? 

Experts say we should also have governance structures 
that encourage participation and the sharing of leadership 
tasks. Did last year's ASCLU read this literature before 
designing the new governance structure to incorporate 
maximum student involvement? And what better way to 
meet the experts' sixth characteristic than fostering per- 
sonal development? Finally, the experts say we should 
have links with the outside world. CLUnet alone is linking 
us in ways we can hardly keep track of, but we often forget 
how much relationship-building is going on through the 
region. And many people aren't even aware of our Upward 
Bound programs and the NCAA Saturday School that are 
regularly building friendships for CLU. Finally, our very 
own KCLU is reaching thousands of people every day. 
Clearly, this place is connected! 

Now, lest anyone think I am overlooking all the work that 
lies ahead, let me state clearly that we have a long way to 
go before our facilities match the quality of our programs, 
faculty and student body. But we're working on this as hard 
as we can. The new Pavilion is just a sign that things are 
continuing to improve on every front at CLU. Like the 
pioneers who founded this place only 30-some years ago, 
we have to keep the vision in front of the community at all 

Sometimes when I walk by the Martin Luther statue (and 
after 2 'A years here, I'm growing kind of fond of it), I see 
what they mean by 'Touchdown Marty." If I listen care- 
fully, I can almost hear him saying, "Way to go, CLU! 
Now, this is my idea of a great university community!" 
Well, they do say that Martin Luther had a great sense of 
humor. If he were really here today, how could he avoid 
catching the CLU community spirit?

The view of a first-year student at CLU 


Contributing Writer 

Rachel Oliveros-Larsen, freshman, is 
learning the responsibilities of living away 
from home. She knows that putting aside 
time to study is important but believes it is 
always hard to find that time. 

"You must be willing to stay home and 
study, not go out with your friends," she 
said. "I have to close my door and put a 
'studying' sign up so people won't bother 
me, or I have to use the computer lab." 

At first, "It felt like a big pajama party or 
a vacation more than it felt like school," 
said Oliveros-Larsen. "It's just starting to 
hit me that we are now in school." 

'The first couple of weeks of school were 
weird. I was so busy (with activities) that I 
had no time to miss home. I felt guilty 
because I was not homesick at all. Now that 
things are more settled, I miss my mom the 
most. She is my best friend," said Oliveros- 

This freshman had to get used to many 
things at CLU. "The wash is way too 
expensive. I hate the prices, she said about 
the campus laundry machines. 

"When I went home to visit, I took a lot of 
laundry and did it myself for free." She 
believes that the cafeteria is also an adjust- 
ment "It's weird having to go to the cafete- 
ria to eat It's hard to find time to eat and to 
be able to eat healthy," she said, adding that 
"I have eaten so many turkey sandwiches!" 
In order to eat healthy in the room, Oliveros- 
Larsen and her roommate go to the local 
grocery store for fresh fruit

her parents. "I 
can buy what- 
ever I want," 
she said with a 
smile. Grocery 
shopping and 
living in the 
dorms is "like 
playing house, 
except you 
have to be re- 
sponsible. Be- 
ing away from 
home, I am re- 
sponsible for 
my own ac- 
tions. I never 
like people to 
remind me 
what to do. I 
like setting my 
own schedule 
and can do it at 
my own time," Oliveros-Larsen said. 

"Now that I have more time to myself, it 
can get lonely. At home with my family it 
is never lonely. With my new friends, we 
are making memories now, but we can't 
reminisce on the past just yet," she added. 

As far as keeping in contact with old 
friends, "the people close to me are still 
close, but the people with whom I was just 
friends with have disappeared. My good 
friends became my best friends." 

She came to. CLU because she liked the 
friendly atmosphere and the beautiful cam- 
pus. "CLU is not like other colleges. At 
first I thought everyone was friendly just

and that I will

it up. Your future is in your hands, not your 
parents anymore," Oliveros-Larsen said. 

Coming from the Anaheim area, Oliveros- 
Larsen is close to home. She went home for 
a visit shortly after school started. 

"It is weird going home. My room does 
not feel like my room anymore. (At home) 
my room feels kind of lonely . This room (at 
CLU) feels like my room now. When I first 
arrived home, I was all by myself. I never 
thought that would happen." 

She keeps close contact with her family 
while she is away at school, never wanting 
to miss anything that happens. 

Oliveros-Larsen hopes to continue her 

future at CLU in music and drama. "Thai's 
what I am here for," she said. Other activi- 
ties will be kept to a minimum because of 
her focus on vocal music. She is taking 
several music classes and one Spanish class 
this fall. She sings in the women's sextet, 
the University Choir and is involved in the 
fall play "De Donde." 

In the play, she has two roles. Felicia, the 
larger part of the two, is a 21 -year old 
Mexican- American. "Felicia believes ev-

said Oliveros-Larsen, adding that "with a 
Latin background, it is easy for me to relate. 
It's really close to me; I can relate a lot to the 

Music has been a part of Oliveros-Larsen 
for as long as she can remember. "It brings 
me joy; it is my true love and there is 
nothing else I would rather do on earth. I 
want to be a performer. I like bringing joy 
to people," she said. 

Music and drama take up most of her free 
time. "I don't have time for a whole lot 
else," she said, adding that "I am the kind of 
person who always says 'yes.' If you al- 
ways say 'yes,' you are going to bum out, 
even with just drama and music." 

Conscious of details.Oliveros-Larsen said 
she feels that "if you care about something, 
you want it to be the best, so you do it, even 
if you don't have the time to do it" 

The French club has 
fun with activities 


Staff Writer 

The purpose of the French club is to help 
the students get to know the French culture, 
said Elaine C. Borgonia, president of the 
French Club. 

However, this year has been a little 
different for the club. It has not just involved 
the French 
culture, since 
French is not 
only spoken 
in France but 
in one-third of 
Africa, parts 
of Asia and in 
certain areas 
of Canada.

The other officers for the club are: vice- 
president Mari Gould; secretary, Doug 
Charachy; and treasurer, Renee Foote. 

Some of the activities the club has 
participated in are Homecoming and hosting 
the Need last Thursday. 

The French club also watches subtitled 

films and is going to a French restaurant this 
November as well as seeing Les Miserable^ 
in December. 

The club will attend an actual movie 
theater to see French films sometime soon. 
They are also hoping to host the Need again. 

"We have speakers coming to talk about 
certain countries such as Senegal and, of 
course, France," Borgonia added.

Ferrier on including gender, instead of 
making this into a black-and-white issue. 

Hicks said that in 1991, most of the 
managerial jobs in the top 1,000 
corporations were held by white males 
and that African- Americans still earned 
approximately 79% of what white 
Americans made at that time according 
to the Department of Labor. 

He also said white males complained 
when women and minorities received 
jobs and promotions, saying it was due 
to affirmative action. 

Hicks added that women and 
minorities are "stigmatized by 
affirmative action" and that 
discrimination in the work force still 

Hicks asked if minorities and women 
would rather go through innuendoes 
because of their jobs instead of doing so 
because they are underqualified. 

Earlier in the debate, Ferrier had called 
most of the anti-affirmative action 
supporters "nobodies." Hicks 
commented on this, saying they are not 
"nobodies," using Arnold 

Schwarzenegger as an example.

Hicks said.

Ferrier disagreed, saying what is

Ferrier said women-owned businesses 
have created many jobs, while Hicks 
stated discrimination against women still 
exists and that politicians like David

part of their agenda since the 1970s. 

"I think we should try to protect what 
we have now," Hicks said.

the CLU community as well as many visit- 
ing parents. 

"The comic acts were incredibly funny, 
the dance routines were very interesting, 
the serious songs were really moving, but I 
really liked the story about Bentley the 
frog," junior Ann Catalano said. 

The evening was emceed by the brother 
and sister team of Craig and Jen Kuehne. It 
was apparent to all that they had put a lot of 
work into their act as they provided a unique 
introduction for every act. 

The Kuehnes did impressions of Forest 
Gump and his friend Jenny, Brad Pitt, and 
the reaction of an auendee at the unveiling 
of "Enormous Luther." 

The show commenced on a humorous 
note with 'The Ballad of Maari Gould" by 
Maari Gould. The song was dedicated to all 
the seniors who have no idea what they are 
going to do with their future, 

Gould accompanied herself on the guitar 
using a repetitive but "catchy" tune she 
credited to the Violent Femmes. 

In contrast to the crazy nature of Gould's 
act, freshman Rachel Oliveros-Larson took 
the stage with "Unexpected Song." 

Freshman Peter Warmanen showed one 
of his many talents when he performed a 
forensics routine that he said was aimed at 
a younger audience. He told the listeners to 
"use your imagination." 

In his routine tilled "Bentley and Egg," 
Warmanen told the tale of a musical frog 
named Bentley who was asked to watch 
over an unhatched egg. 

Dance routines also provided a change 
from the singing talents of the many choir

Wines, Bianchi use faculty film series 
to discuss issues of religion vs. science 

Staff Writer 

Dr. Joan Wines, English professor, and 
Julius Bianchi, user support services 
director, presented "Agnes of God" as part 
of the CLU Faculty Film Series on Friday 

In celebrating a centennial of movies 
from 1895-1995, CLU faculty members 
present films to any other faculty or students 
who are interested each Friday night from 
7-10, in Richter Hall. 

Last week's feature dealt with a 
psychiatrist. Dr. Martha Livingston, played 
by Jane Fonda, who is called to a Quebec 
convent to interrogate a disturbed nun (Meg 
Tilly). The nun, Agnes, is accused i of 
murdering her baby, although she claims to 
have no recollection of it nor how the baby 
was conceived. 

The film, which Wines stated as her 
favorite of all time, began as a Broadway 
play in 1982. From there, director Norman 
Jewison transferred the story to the big 
screen where it was nominated for three 
Academy Awards: best music, best actress, 
and best supporting actress. 

Surprisingly, "The film disappeared in 
about a week after it came out and received 

the nominations," Wines said. 

Throughout the picture, Livingston 
questions Agnes to find out what really 
took place on the night she gave birth and 
fell unconscious, only to be taken to the 
hospital while her baby soon after was 
discovered in a wastepaper basket, 
strangled by bedsheets. 

"The Catholic Church definitely was 
not happy with the film, the idea of (one 
of its nuns) gelling pregnant in (her) 
convent," Wines said. 

The overall message the movie asks 
people is: doreligionand faith, orscience 
and reason prevail? 

There is no clear answer as the picture 
leaves its viewers hanging; although with 
the idea of immaculate conception, one 
has to lean more toward a religious 

And though depicted as "a woman's 
film" (according to Wines), "Agnes of 
God" is an extremely interesting story 
from the standpoint of curiosity alone. It 
keeps the viewers' attention throughout 
the entire flick. 

The Faculty Film Series continues this 
Friday when Dr. Russell Stockard, 
communication arts professor, presents 
"Citizen Kane." (see Calendar for details.)

Senior dedicates time and effort 
to help build homes for others 


Staff Writer 

While many seniors are struck with 
senioritis at this point in the semester and 
don't want to be involved with much of 
anything, senior Melissa Greason works 
two jobs and serves as president for the 
CLU chapter of Habitat for Humanity. 

Her major is liberal arts and she will 
graduate in May. She plans on attending the 
elementary school teacher credential 
program at CLU after she graduates. 

"I love children. I enjoy children. I have 
had some great teachers that made a 
difference in my life, and I would like to do 
the same for someone else," she says. 

Greason works as a co-teacher at Mount 
Cross Child Development Center, a 
Lutheran school located in Camarillo. After 
she receives her teaching credential she 
plans on moving to Oregon. 

She also works at the General Nutrition 
Centers at Camarillo, Oxnard and Port 

"For fun, I hang out with my roommates 
and go dancing," she says. 

Greason says her family would like to see 
her more often but they are proud of her 

She has been involved with Habitat for 
Humanity, a non-profit organization, since 
her freshman year. 

"The basic premise (of the organization) 
is to provide everyone with a place to live," 
she says. 

The CLU chapter of this organization 
meets once a month. 

The members go on work projects to 
repair homes that may get condemned if 
they are not restored. 

The members take an annual trio even' 

The Habitat for Humanity group at one of their work projects in Mexico 

Spring Break. 

"We have gone to Tijuana once, Tecate 
last year, and we will be going to Mexico 
again this Spring Break," Greason says. 

She says she was inspired to become a 
member of this club by alumna Kjersti 

"She motivated me to become involved 
and I have enjoyed the experience," Greason 

"I would like to see more people join this 
organization and come to the work projects. 
It's tough, because it starts at 7 a.m. Saturday 
morning," she says. 

The organization has had one fundraiser 
for the fall, which was the Choral Concert. 

" The choir let us collect an offering and 
we earned over $1 ,200," she says. 

The organization has another fundraiser 
scheduled for the spring. It will be a 

performance by a jazz quintet which will be 
held in the Samuelson Chapel. 

Greason has some specific things she 
says she would like to see Habitat for

"My goal for the CLU chapter is for us to 
build a new house from the ground up, but 
it probably won't happen while I'm here,"

of working for Blitz Build, the product of a 
Jimmy Carter work project that occurred in 

"There were 20,000 volunteers to build

"I've learned that there are incredible 
people out there willing to make this world 
a better place," she adds. 

Religion professor works on novel 

inspired by his experiences in Africa 

Streeter expresses interest in various activities 


Staff Writer 

Dr. Jarvis Streeter is a man with many 
varied talents and interests. 

Since 1988, Streeter has been a part of 
California Lutheran University's religion 

During the spring semester of 1995, he 
was away from teaching, concentrating all 
his attention on writing a book on human 
nature and sin. 

Streeter could not stay away from 
teaching, his passion in life, for very long. 
He is back to his responsibilities of teaching 
modern church history and systematic 
Christian theology. 

The professor's desire to study theology 
and leach was not always obvious. It was a 
long process of self-growth and discovery 
that led him to graduate school at Yale. 

Growing up in the Lutheran Church didn 't 
spare Streeter the confusion that comes 
with seeking the truth. Once out of college, 
he decided to find God for himself. He 
decided this was a necessity. If Christianity 
is a true religion, it should be taken more 
seriously. If not, he shouldn 't be a hypocrite. 

Reading three different books at the same 
time on biblical archeology, commentaries 
to the Bible, and the Bible itself, Streeter, 
not yet a doctor or a theologian, discovered 
not only a true faith in God, but also a 
fascination with learning the history and 
archeology of that time. 

After graduating from college with a 
degree in sociology, he found himself 
teaching inasmall African village in Kenya. 

"I might have been the first white person 
the village people saw in their entire life," 
Streeter says. 

He says life in the village was very 
primitive with no electricity, undrinkable 
water and mud huts. 

Nevertheless, Streeter defined his 
experience in Kenya as one of the most 
gratifying experiences in his enure life. 
While there, he became a member of the 
tribe and received a valuable trophy from 
the elders of the tribe. He was given the 
tribal name "Marete," which means, "a 
bringer of victory and good things." 

Streeter says that working as a teacher in 
the small village helped him in making his 
career choice. By that time he already knew 
that his main topic of interest was theology 

and biblical studies. 

He says he also enjoyed sharing his 
knowledge and the fruits of his education 
with the students while learning and 
answering his own questions in the process. 
Streeier's experiences in Africa served as 
an inspiration for his novel. He said that in 
the future he wants to write a screenplay for 
a movie based on the book. 

While developing ideas for five more 
books, the professor also tries to entertain 
some of his other interests. He is currently 
taking art classes. 

Streeter also tries to pursue his interest in 
music. At one time the professor actually 
faced the dilemma of deciding whether he 
should become a musician and composer or 
a theologian. 

The professor says that the best thing 
about CLU is the students. 

"Teaching keeps me young, helps me to 
stay elastic and flexible, although it can be 
challenging at times," he says. 

Streeter says he likes the diversity of 
opinions and religious affiliations in the 
classroom. He is convinced that not having 
an isolated denominational school "keeps 
us from getting too comfortable within our

Who the people of the CLU 
community are, what brought them to 
the campus and what they must do while 
at the University were several of the 
subjects George Engdahl discussed 
during his Chapel message last 

Engdahl, vice president of 
institutional advancement, began by 
commenting on the number of people 

"It seems every attendance record for 
chapel is broken on the day I'm chosen 
to speak," he said. 

"The best and worst times of your life 
are during college," Engdahl added. 

He spokeon how the limeatCalifomia 
Lutheran is precious, and pointed out 
how those in the audience could make 
the most of their time. 

His message was based on the 
Beatitudes found in Matthew 5. 

"The Beatitudes serve as a guideline 
for life," he said. 

Before Engdahl spoke, a beautiful 
rendition of the song "Gradual" was 
performed The song was written by 
Anton Brucker and was harmonized 
well by the group of 12 singers. 

Today's chapel speaker is Mark 
Knutson, university pastor.

Streeter added that he wishes every 
student could experience life in a foreign 
country in order to be able to look at his own 
country from the point of view of world 

Streeter shared the secret to his personal 
happiness and satisfaction, saying, 'The 
most important thing is to like your life. 
Life is the process. If you don't enjoy the 
process, find something you enjoy doing."

Kingsmen run over 
SCIAC rival Redlands 

Team battles La Verne for title 


Sports Editor 

The Kingsmen stayed in the hunt for the 
SCIAC title this past week with a 21-19 
victory over Redlands. 

The squad travels to first place La Veme 
this weekend with hopes of gaining a share 
of the league championship. 

"We've got nothing to lose," said senior 
defensive tackle Tyler Blackmore, and that 
seems to be the attitude for the team as it 
heads into the game against the tough La 
Veme team. 

"This is probably the best team we've 
played all year," said senior defensive end 
Matt Johnson, looking forward to the game. 

"We just need everyone to do their job 
and we'll have a good chance to win the 
game," he said. 

La Verne has won all eight games they 
have played this year, including five wins in 

The game against Redlands was a big 
victory for a team reeling from a tough loss 
at Pomona-Pitzer. 

It was the first time the Kingsmen have 
beaten Redlands since 1991. 

"It felt real ly good," said senior offensive 
lineman Tony Papa, "and it hasn't been 
done around here in a long time." 

It was especially sweet for the seniors, as 
it was their last home game of their careers. 

"It was really nice for us seniors," said 
Johnson, adding "it was especially good 
coming against Redlands." 

The game was highlighted by a 
spectacular rushing attack by the Kingsmen, 
highlighted by Fredrik Nanhed carrying the 
ball 37 times for 238 yards. 

Nanhed, only a freshman , broke the school 
single season rushing record by pushing his 

season total to 1 ,282 yards. 

The previous record of 1 ,236 yards was 
set by Terrence Thomas last season. 

Senior fullback Ivan Moreno also had a 
great game, carrying the ball 1 1 times for 
66 yards, while making several key lead 
blocks for Nanhed. 

The Kingsmen jumped out to a 21-7 
lead in the first half, and seemed on their 
way to an easy victory. 

However, the Redlands coaches made 
numerous adjustments at halftime and 
switched from a three man line in the first 
half to a five man front in the second. 

They keyed on Nanhed most of the 
second half, and shutout the Kingsmen in 
the second half. 

However, the Kingsmen defense held 
tough and protected the lead. 

Senior linebacker Chris Peltonen 
blocked an extra point after the Bulldogs 
second touchdown to leave the score at 
21-13, in favor of the Kingsmen. 

Then, after Redlands tailback Matt 
Figueroa scored another touchdown, junior 
linebacker Justin Monical made a key 
play, hitting Redlands runner LakeScalise 
at the goal line on the two-point conversion 
to keep the Kingsmen in the lead 21-19. 
The Kingsmen offense again stalled but, 
sophomore punter Jeff Shea pinned the 
Redlands offense deep, dropping the ball 
at the one. 

Senior defensive back Jerry Butkiewicz 
sealed the victory with an interception, 
and the celebration was on. 

Now the team turns its attention to La 
Veme, this Saturday at 1 p.m. 

The team would appreciate your support 
this weekend as they aim for a share of the 
SCIAC title. 

Regals season ends 
with playoff loss 

Staff Writer 

For the fifth year in a row, California 
Lutheran's Women's soccer team won the 
SCIAC championship. During the last five 
years, the Regals have compiled an amazing 
58-1-1 conference record, including this 
year's undefeated conference season. 

Only one thing stood between these teams 
and a shot at the national championship, 
and that thing was UCSD. Three times in 
the last four years, CLU has lost to UCSD in 
the first round of the playoffs, and this 
season ended with the same story. 

The Regals dream season concluded last 
week when they were shutout by the Tritons 
2-0. The game was played at UC San Diego 
in the rain. "The weather was a huge 
factor," said head coach Dan Kuntz, "the 

ball skidded right off the ground." 

The loss was their second of the year to 
UC San Diego, but Kuntz had nothing bad 
to say. "It's a great program, they've been 
in the playoffs every year for the past ten 
years." He said UCSD's overall team speed 
and strength is what led his team to defeat, 
but praised his girl's effort. "This school's 
got27,000studentstofind 1 1 soccer players, 
we played our hearts out." 

The future looks bright for CLU soccer. 
In the two games this season against UCSD, 
the Regals scored only one goal, and that 
was by freshman Holy Roepke. "I know 
great things will happen to CLU soccer. 
Where we are now is not only due to this 
team's hard work, but previous teams, our 
coaches, and our fans," said Roepke, "You 
just wait, people will know CLU soccer." 

Regals Volleyball begin 
national title quest Friday 

#1 seed Regals battle Chapman on Saturday 

News Editor 

After the surprise of last season *s SCI AC 
title and berth into the playoffs, there was a 
lot of pressure on this years squad to equal 
last year's performance. They haven't 
matched last year's performance, they have 
surpassed it 

They answered the challenge with a 23-2 
overall record and a 12-0 SCIAC record. 
They won their second consecutive league 
title and they finished the regular season 
with the #1 seed in the West region. Real 
revenge comes this weekend at the NCAA 
Division III West Regional Championships 
at UC San Diego. 

The tournament begins for the Regals on 
Friday when they battle the #4 seed 
Chapman at 5 p.m. 

UCSD brings its #2 seed into action 
against the #3 seed Occidental at 7:30 p.m. 
Friday's winners will play on Saturday at 
7:30 p.m. 

Having more experience, this year's team 
seems to be ready to dominate playoffs as 
they did the season before. 

"We're real excited about playing this 
weekend," said sophomore Liz Martinez. 

The Regals seem confidentgoing into the 

"We have a real good chance of winning 
it all," Martinez added. 

The Regals have reason to be confident 
as they defeated Chapman on Sept. 9, (13- 

Against UCSD, the Regalsare 1-1 beating 
them 3-1 and losing 0-3. Their record against 
Occidental this season was 3-0 winning 9 
total games to Occidental's 4 wins. 

This year, the Regals enter the playoffs 
under different circumstances. 

"This year we are more experienced and 
more confident," added Martinez. 

The squad enters the West Regional as 
the the #1 team and the favorite to win it all. 
The Regals bring a seven game winning 
streak into the playoffs with their last loss 
coming against UCSD. 

Playoffs represent a new beginning, and 
this years squad will enter unchartered 
territory with a win in playoffs. 

"Its like a new season for us, we're all 
very excited about playing," Martinez said.

Students account 
for 75% of costs 

Continued from Front Page 

There are increases each year in the 
fees that students pay. Last year's 
increase was 4 percent. 

"(The increase) is dependent on a lot 
of things - Costs of salary going up, and 
what the costs of inflation has been 
during the year and so on," he said. 

The tuition and fees that students pay, 
account for more than 75 percent of the 
total revenue that CLU uses to pay for 
expenses, according to the budget 
summary for October 1995-96. 

The university also receives revenue 
from other sources. 

For October 1995-96, CLU receives 
3.2 percent of its revenue from "Private 
Gifts and Grants - Unrestricted," 2.6 
percent from "Sales and Services of 
Educational," 0.8 percent from 
"Endowment Income," 0.4 percent from 
"Federal Grants," 13..2 percent from 
"Auxiliary Enterprises," with the 
remaining 1.5 percent coming from 
"Other Income." 

The figures quoted under revenue in 
the budget summary are unrestricted, 
Allison said. 

"That is to say, we can spend it any 
way we want. 

"But the federal financial aid (and 
some private grants) that go to students 
do come with restrictions (on how we 
can spend it)," he added. 

Commenting on significant trends in 
CLU's budgeting, Allison noted that the 
school is spending more on scholarships. 

"That's where a lot of the revenue 
increase goes to actually." 

This, Allison said, is largely because 
of "student needs." 

Ledbetter leads poetry reading 

Childhood influences image of writings 


Staff Writer 

Dr. Jack Ledbetter, of the English 
department, led the "Autumn Amber" 
poetry reading on Thursday evening in 
Sam uelson Chapel, entertaining guests with 
anecdotes of childhood memories from 
Southern Illinois. 

Ledbetter opened the evening with 
"Autumn Amber" describing autumn as his 
favorite time of year. The rose colored sky 
and gray leaves were a few of the 
descriptions of a Southern Illinois autumn. 

He read a Sonnet from his personal 
collection proclaiming to understand the 
struggle students have creating their own. 
"A Sonnet," Ledbetter said, "Is very easy, 
but a good one is the hardest thing to do." 
"Crow Weathers" is an interesting 
description of crows telling the weather by 
their behavior. 

"Soon" best describes the differences 
between summer and fall as it discusses the 
packing away of summer clothes and 
preparing for the fall. 

Ledbetter has a wonderful interpretation 
of a visit to the dentist with the poem 
"Always the Dream," explaining the step- 
by-step process a patient endures while 
staring up at the white ceiling from the 
chair. The poem was inspired by Ledbetter 
as he was deciding what to read while he 
was preparing to sit in the chair himself. 

After teaching high school for six years, 
Ledbetter said he is able to relate to the film 
"Dead Poets Society." He said it's an 
excellent movie." "The 11th Hour" is

KCLU was dealt a huge blow when it was 
not given a STEP development grant 
totalling $89,100 by the Corporation for 
Public Broadcasting. 

KCLU was denied the grant because of 
changes in how the CPB judged stations 
applying for the grant. The change that cost 
CLU the grant was the prescense of another 
signal in the area. 

"It is unfortunate their criteria does not 
recognize the service being provided to the 
community," said Dan Kuntz, KCLU 
general manager. 

KCLU was unaware of the change and 
was told earlier by the CPD that the station 
qualified. "We worked very hard, we felt 
pretty good about it," Kuntz said, adding, 
"there is a process, and its all political." 

Now, KCLU must look at alternative 
sources for raising money because there are 
no foreseeable grants any time soon. 

"Atthe moment there is so much question 
about whether the government wants to 
fund public broadcasting that we don't see 
any opportunities for another grant," Kuntz 

The radio station has some events planned 
to raise money. One source KCLU is now 
doing is selling compact discs to listenters. 
If a listenter hears a song on KCLU that he 
or she wishes to purchase, the CD. can be 
ordered by mail by dialing 1-800 75music. 
The station gets a percentage of every CD. 

There are also other events planned 
including a live broadcast from the grand 
opening of Border's Books. The station 
will receive a percentage of every book 

The jazz concert will be held in the spring. 

The fall pledge drive was a huge success. 
There were 439 calls raising $29,000 in a 
week. These numbers jumped considerably 
from last spring's drive which featured 169 
calls and raised $18,000. 

"For a station this new, that says a lot," 
added Kuntz. 

Even more important is the expansion of 
listnership, he said. Last Spring the 
contributers originated from 12 cities; that 
number doubled to 24 cities this fall. 

"This shows we are gaining in audience 
in otherciues," Kuntz said, adding, "building 
a base for operation is the number one pillar 
for development"

A few reasons seniors may 
not be able to graduate in May 

The question of the day: Will this year's 
seniors really be able to wade through all the 
paperwork required to graduate in May? 

This may not apply to all of you right now, 
but listen to the warnings of those who are 
being forced to face this very painful pro- 

The entire process of graduating does not 
merely consist of walking up the stairs and 
being handed a diploma while you shake the 
president's hand. 

Instead, it is the final test to see if you are 
ready to join the "real world." 

First, it tests to see if you can read a 
document more confusing than an income 
tax form. Apparently the school hired the 
same writers to compose their confusing set 
of rules. 

According to the 1995-96 Undergraduate 
Catalog, "The final 30 credits taken prior to 
graduation must be completed at CLU. How- 
ever, students who have completed 80 or 
more credits at CLU may take six of the last 
30 credits at another accredited senior col- 

This is not necessarily the hardest passage 
to understand in the catalog, but it is perhaps 
more than the average student brain can 
handle while also having to worry about a 
full course load. 

The second test is whether students have 
been thoroughly trained to fill out mile-high 
piles of sometimes unnecessary paperwork. 

The school made an attempt to let seniors 
know what needed to be done, but the mailer 
sent out was just as cryptic as the catalog. 

There are a number of forms that must be 
filled out, a certain number of people who 
must sign them, and a certain amount of 
personal information must be accurately 

The registrar's office seems to have done 
the best it can to help with the problem. 

However, students are forced to wonder if 
the registrar' s office personnel are looking at 
a solution that doesn't really deal with the 
source of the problem: confusing catalog 
language and unnecessary work. 

One opinion seems to echo the average 
students opinion. As the late Dr. Howard A. 
White, former president of Pepperdine Uni- 
versity, often observed while speaking at 
graduation, "Anyone who can read the cata- 
log and understand it should be allowed to 
automatically graduate."

I have been counting our blessings 
at CLU lately and want to share 10 of 
them with you, dear students. The list 
could go on and on. Unlike David 
Letterman, I do not have a hierarchy- 
except perhaps for the last one. Here 
they are: 

• CLU's women's volleyball team. 
Brava, Regals! Even if you had not 
vanquished UC San Diego in the rubber match of the 
season Saturday, we would be tremendously proud of you. 
It is an almost religious experience to watch you orchestrate 
the apparent pandemonium on the court into a ballet of 
victory. Tears of happiness come to my eyes when you fix 
the ribbons in each other's hair. Good luck in Ohio on 
Saturday. And thanks and congratulations to all the 
Kingsmen and Regals for an outstanding fall sports season. 

• The fall Choral Concert. Count them, nearly 60 voices 
beautifully arrayed in their fresh purple robes in Samuelson 
Chapel singing for the enjoyment of a really big audience 
and the benefit of Habitat for Humanity. Your anthems 

Dr. Luther Luedtke 

wonderful expression of our students' 
concern for the welfare of the less fortu- 
nate in our community. There is a great 
deal of philanthropy (love of others) in 
our midst. 

• The Stoner Clark Lectures. 
Only a couple senior of CLU faculty 
ever met the rather eccentric Harold 
Stoner Clark, but we all benefit each 
year from his curiosity about the bor- 
derlands between science and philoso- 
phy and from his gift endowing an an- 
nual lecture series in this field. What 
used to be reserved to speculative phi- 
losophy is constantly being revealed 
through empirical science. Dr. Daniel 
Kevles' s lectures on the genome project, 
genetics, race, and IQ last week roamed 
the frontiers of CLU's own future en- 
deavors in science, sociology, politics, 
philosophy and theology. Watch now 
for the Winter Break conference "Issues in Contemporary 
Christian Theology" and the Pulitzer Lectures next spring 
by Professor James McPherson of Princeton University. 

• ASCLU and the Program Board. Hats off to Mark 
Schoenbeck, Nicole Whitmarsh and their compatriots for 
the dignity, objectivity, passion, time, professionalism and 
true dedication that they have brought to student govern- 
ment that genuinely cares about CLU. A challenge and a 
glory of this still new university is that it is not given but 
made by each of us-working together. 

• The Pavilion. Every university campus needs a lode- 
stone, a North Pole, a magnet, a center. The renovated SUB 

made our spirits soar. Surely it is not only the promise of and new Pavilion are a tremendous step toward bringing us 

a tour to Hawaii that brings you together. Thank you also 
to the CLU Community Orchestra, our faculty and student 
recitalists, performers in Wednesday Chapel services, and 
the Pep Band. Was that Courtney Love on the electric 

• "<,De Donde?". As one of the passionate actors told me 
via e-mail, the play made us all ask the existential question: 
"Where are you from?" How different from the open door 
policy that welcomed my German immigrant grandparents 
in the 1880s. It was not only a provocative debut to the 

together-east and west, night and day, residential student 
and commuter, undergrad and graduate student, faculty 
and staff. Sooner rather than later, we hope, a completely 
new student center will grow up around the Pavilion. Right 
now, though enjoy it to its fullest

Emily: Okay, Michele wasn't just a little

Americans in the cities we went to. 

Michele: When in Germany do as the

The second day in Munich we visited a

was cheap and beautiful in Prague, our next

Just a warning - Prague is not the easiest

Amy Walz serves the community; gets to 
play and coach soccer in her spare time 


Features Editor 


Staff Writers 

Many students at CLU are involved in 
extracurricular activities, and senior Amy 
Walz is no exception. Walz spends a lot of 
her lime volunteering and playing soccer. 

"I work with publicity and try to gel 
people to volunteer their time," Walz said. 

One of the things she did this summer 
was organize a soccer clinic at CLU for 
Ventura County Special Olympics. "I saw 
thai there was a need for Special Olympics 
soccer. There was literally no involve- 
ment in Ventura County," she said. 

Walz also worked at a Fellowship of 
Christian Athletes camp in her home town 
of San Diego for a week over the summer. 
There she coached girls in soccer. "I really 
loved the camp. I would have paid lo do il, 
it was so much fun," she said. 

FCA has a chapter on campus here at 

CLU. Walz has been the Co-President of 
FCA the past two years. She has been very 
active in it for the past four years. "Currently 
we hope to build up membership in the club 
so we can do more things," she said. 

"What I like about volunteering is that il 
does not only benefit others but it especially 
benefits you. Il gives you the chance to do 
something good for others," she said. 

Walz explained how a lot of the time 
students are just sitting around doing noth- 
ing, so they might as well do something 
valuable with their lime. "It's a unique way 
to bring about change," she said. 

Walz is an art major with a minor in coach- 
ing. She is noi yet sure of what her plans will 
be but hopes that she can somehow combine 
the two together. 

Recently, Walz' and the women's soccer 
team's season ended with a loss to UCSD in 
the playoffs. 

But, their season was a spectacular one as 
the women again won SCI AC with an amaz- 
ing 10-0-1 league record. Walz played an 

important role on that league cham- 
pionship team as starting goal- 

She plans to do some coaching 
this winter at LaReina High School. 
She will help coach the girl's team. 

"If you find something you like 
to volunteer in, you keep going 
back." Walz said. 

Even though Walz is busy, she 
still has lime to think about gradu- 
ating in May. 

"I am very happy that I am going 
to graduate. I can't wait to move 
on. I'm really thankful that at this 
small school we can be involved in 
so many things," Walz said. 

She encourages everyone to get 
involved with the community by 
volunteering. She says that even 
one hour of your day will make a 
difference in someone else's life. 

"I will continue to volunteer the 
rest of my life," she said.

know she is still in the learning process 
in terms of what needs to be done. 

Campos said that she often feels 
isolated when she teaches in the class- 
rooms. She feels as if she is not bring- 
ing enough experience to the class- 
room, but figures that il is probably has 

to do with her own confidence. 

"In termsof the university, I am thank- 
ful for the opportunities it has given me 
noi only in the education but also in the 
leadership it has provided me with and 
the confidence in what I can do," she 
said. She also said that she has a love for 
this school because it has helped her to 
follow her goals. 

She is thankful to Dr. S latter (who 
retired two years ago) for his guidance 
and time in helping her succeed in her 

"CLU provides you with not only the 
education that you pay for, but also you 
get the whole package with it which you 
would not get anywhere else," she said. 

She added that she is really looking 
forward in working with an Alum and 
that there is something she would like to 
do in terms of communication. One of 
those things is to let students know that 
once they graduate they are part of the 
Alumni Association. 

She looks forward to the opportunities 
that the Alumni will bring for her and 
hopes that she can encourage students 
who hate math to take it and try to change 
their attitudes about it because she be- 
lieves that math surrounds us. 

Campos' closing thoughts were con- 
cluded with hopes to encourage indi- 
viduals and students to earn their bach- 
elors degrees or just a higher degree. "A 
higher degree does not guarantee you a 
job, but it definitely opens doors that 
would have never opened for you be- 
fore," she said. 

Emery majors in 
cultural studies 

Staff Writer 

Cultural Studies is an Interdisciplinary 
major that senior Mike Emery created. 

Putting together this major was hard work 
for Emery. 

"It was stressful for a while, but I'm glad 
I'm doing il," Emery 

Emery created a ma- 
jor, drawing from ihree 
different departments, 
which included religion, 
sociology and English. 

"It's just a matter of 
creating something that 
mixes together. Inter- 
disciplinary majors are 
pretty broad, you can 
do a lot of different 
things," Emery said. 

Emery came to CLU 
his freshman year as an 
undecided major. He 
then tried a double ma- 
jor of English and 
drama, but wasn ' t satis- 

During his sophomore year, Emery real- 
ized that none of the departments at CLU 
met his educational needs. 

"I thought it (Interdisciplinary) was an 
interesting idea, and I explored that," Em- 
ery said. 

Some classes Emery has taken for his 
major are Non-Westem writers, African 
American Literature, Women writers, Reli- 
gious Traditions of East and South Asia and 
Latino Communities. 

It took Emery all spring semester of his 

Mike Emery 

sophomore year to get his major approved. 
"It's a lot of paperwork, and it's just a 
matter of going through the process," he 

The first step to getting an Interdiscipli- 
nary major approved is by submitting a 
proposal in writing. 
This has to be approved by the Interdisci- 
plinary Committee, 
who reviews it and 
makes suggestions. 

Then an actual ap- 
plication for the major 
must be filled out. The 
application has to be 
signed by a faculty ad- 
visor and by a comm it- 
tee advisor of the Inter- 
disciplinary Board. 

Then, the applica- 
tion goes to the Vice 
President of Academic 
Affairs. After all of 
these steps, the major 
is sent to the registrar 
Cor acceptance. 

Dr. Sig Schwarz, 
Emery's faculty ad- 
viser, was very helpful 
during this process, according to Emery. 

"He was very encouraging," he said "He 
helped me formulate it." 

One disadvantage of Emery having an 
Interdisciplinary major is that when some- 
one asks him what his major is, he cannot 
just give a title and that is the end of conver- 

"I have to explain what my major is 
everytime someone asks me," Emery said. 
Emery plans to go on to graduate school, 
and eventually become a professor.

Lisa Castro-Conde is a junior at CLU 
with a double major in math and drama. She 
receives much support from her family. 

She has a busy schedule with 23 units, 
commutes to Moorpark College for one 
class and isactively involved with thedrama 

"I don't recommend that everyone does 
this unless (they're) focused because it is 
quite difficult," said Castro-Conde. 

Her eighth-grade teacher taught her 
algebra, which motivated her to enjoy math. 
"When I was in high school, I tutored 
algebra. I love algebra. In order to learn 
math, I think you have to really accept 
things for what they are and learn the steps 
involved," she said. 

She plans to attend the credential program 
at CLU, become a high school math teacher, 
and perhaps move to Colorado, Montana, 
or Washington to teach there. 

"I would like to make my classroom fun, 
more of a casual theme, more relaxed, but 
still get the point across," said Castro-Conde. 

She would like to be open with her students 
so that they can discuss any problems they 
may have concerning math. 

"Maybe I will have students present a 
certain formula that they know very well in 
front of the class," she said. 

A class that she is taking now has her 
presenting a formula in front of the class. 

"If you're learning something and you 're 
explaining it to someone else it sticks and 
you learn it a lot better,"Castro-Conde said. 

She became involved with drama in grade 
school. She took the beginning acting class 
and building production lab at CLU. 

Later, she became a stage manager. "I 
like seeing the outcome of getting there," 
she said. 

She is a technical departmental assistant, 
and enjoys learning new things about 

Castro-Conde loves drama and all of the 
professors in the department. She enjoys 
working with her boss, technical director 
Mike Roehr. "I look up to him saying to 
myself maybe someday I could do that," 
she said. 

She prefers to work behind the scenes. "I 

love building things, I can work 
with power tools and not hurt 
myself," she said. 

Castro-Conde is the vice- 
president of the Drama Club, and 
for fun she enjoys sewing with 
her roommates and listening to 
classical music. 

"Teaching is 3/4 theater and 1/ 

4 preparation," she said. 

This summer she hopes to be 

an intern at the Civic Arts Plaza. 

"I ran the lights for Santa 

5 usana and afterwards I was asked 
for my number to help out with 
other shows," Castro-Conde said. 

"This made me feel that I was 
doing something right, and this 
will allow me to get my foot in the 
door, to gel great references," she 

Her family is very supportive 
and makes her feel that she can 
accomplish anything, 'They tell 
me anything you want to do, go 
for it just don't electrocute 
yourself," Castro-Conde said.

Presidential hosts 
guide prospective 
students of CLU 

CLUnet News 

Staff Writer 

Most prospective students' first in-depth 
look at CLU begins with Presidential Hosts, 
students who offer daily campus tours and 
guide visitors through the university maze. 

According to Jim Doom, Presidential Host 
coordinator, 42 CLU students currently 
participate in the hospitality program. 

"It's a student volunteer organization 
which gives campus tours to prospective 
students," he said. 

The program works by placing each vol- 
unteer at an appointed time at the Admis- 
sions Office where they take any scheduled 
or drop-in guests for an hour-long tour of 
the campus. 

Doom also said that Presidential Hosts 
are available for tours Monday through 
Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

After a (morning) campus tour, Presi- 
dential Hosts can also have lunch with 
prospective students, and discuss some ques- 
tions the guests may have about the univer- 

"We also have overnight stays for our 
visitors," he said. 

With overnight stays at CLU, prospec- 
tive students are placed in a Presidential 
Host's dorm for one night, where the stu- 
dents have the opportunity to further ex- 
plore and experience CLU student life. 

Occasionally, Presidential Hosts will also 
have "Showcase" tours for larger groups of 
visitors. Doom said. 

"Showcase tours are for larger [high 
school] group tours, but it's basically simi- 
lar to our individual tours,*' he said. 

Although the Presidential Host program 
receives more volunteer appl ications than it 
can accept in a year, Doom encouraged all 
"enthusiastic" students to apply for a posi- 

"We look for high-energy people who 
enjoy CLU, and who want to promote CLU 
to the public," he said. 

"You also need at least a 2.5 GPA," he 

Although the Presidential Host program 
is completely voluntary and student-run, 
Doom said the university donates some 
money for their activities. 

"We get some money from the Admis- 
sions Office for our social activities. It's 
kind of a way for them to say 'thanks' to us 
for helping them," he said. 

Not only is the Presidential Host a stu- 
dent hospitality program, but it is also a 
"social organization" where volunteers get 
together and participate in fun activities. 

"We do things like go to Dodger games, 
play laser tag and have barbecues," Doom 

As coordinator for the hospitality pro- 
gram and a former Presidential Host him- 
self, Doom is familiar with the (asks and 
responsibil ities of being a Host He said he 
plans to use his experiences in the program 
to "become an adm issions counselor maybe 
after (he) graduates." 

'The (Presidential Host) program has 
given me a lot of insight into the process of 
student recruitment, and how important it is 
to give personal attention to prospective 
students," he said. 

Education students 
meet dean & discuss 
distance learning 

ISS Contributing Writer 

Students in Professors Silva Karayan ' s 
EdGen 502 and Jeanne Hollen's Educ 
463 got a chance to meet the new dean of 
the School of Education, Dr. Carol Bartell 
on Thursday, October 12. 

This may not sound too exciting, but 
consider the logistics. Prof. Karayan and 
her class were at the Oxnard campus and 
Dean Bartell along with Prof. Holland 
and her class were in Thousand Oaks. 

CLUnet is pretty fabulous, but it can- 
not beam our deans to the off-campus 
centers like staff on the Enterprise. 

Professor Karayan in collaboration 
with the Office of Information Systems 
and Services organized a video telecon- 
ference where Dean Bartell made some 
opening remarks about education in gen- 
eral and the School of Education in par- 

The students had the opportunity to 
ask questions regarding CLU's educa- 
tion program and about Dr. Bartell, and 
then responded to questions from the 
students in the classes. 

The video conference provided a 
unique opportunity for the students who 
attend classes in Oxnard to meet the dean 
and to talk with her. 

The second part of the "class" focused 
on a discussion of distance learning is- 

Relying on other technology on cam- 
pus, I requested a faxed transcript of a 
news story from NPR's Morning Edition 
(audio available from the NPR WWW 
Home Page). 

Using information from the story, Prof. 
Karayan and I designed a brief survey on 
adult learning environments. 

Students from several education 
classes responded to the survey. During 
the video conference Prefoessor Karayan 
and I led a discussion with the students 
and faculty on the survey results and 
implications for using new technologies 
in CLU's instructional delivery. 

Inter-departmental collaboration must 
occur to produce an event such as this. 

It took Prof. Karayan's interest in ex- 
ploring how CLU's video conferencing 
capabilities can be used, David Grannis 
and Media Services capable camera 
work, Zareh Marselian's technical ex- 
pertise to set up the equipment, our 
Internet connection, the people at KCLU 
for bringing us NPR and providing con- 
tact information for some of the content, 
and the students who acted as Guinea 

Silva and I thank all those who helped 
make this video conference a success. 
And successful it was; stay tuned next 
issue for the students' response to the 
video conference and their suggestions 
for future uses.

Art department in desperate need of gallery 


Staff Writer 

CLU desperately needs an art gallery, 
and Joel Edwards, art instructor, has been 
pushing for one for several years. 

"There is not a high school, junior col- 
lege, other university in this area or even in 
the United Slates, of the stature of CLU, 
that does not have an art gallery." Edwards 

"CLU is a liberal arts university, it has an 
excellent art department, and we have no 
place to show art What is the sense of 
sitting and producing all of this work? Who's 
seeing it? The art that the students do should 
be seen by their peers," he added. 

All art majors are required to have a 
senior art exhibit, Edwards said. "We are 
not doing right by our senior art students. 
We offer them exactly two days in which to 
exhibit the artwork that they have worked 
for two, three, or four years on." At most 
other universities, these exhibits last up to 
two weeks. 

"We show in Nygreen 2 and 3 during 
Scandinavian weekend, and it's not right: 

not very many 
people come in and 
see it, the students 
work very hard for 
it, and it's my feel- 
ing they're being 
shortchanged," he 

"The idea of 
having a gallery is 
our seniors would 
have exhibits in 
twos or threes; they 
could each have 
two-weeks time to 
have their work up, 
and within six- 
weeks time, everybody would be able to 
have a chance," Edwards said. 

An art gallery could serve other purposes 
as well. "We have a wonderful person com- 
ing in to teach advanced photography in the 
springtime. Lawrence Janss is coming on. 
He is involved with the Civic Arts Center, 
and on the Arts Advisory Council. He has 
studied for many years with Ansel Adams 
(and) has an extensive collection of Ansel 

Adams' prints 
from the original 
negatives. He has 
(photographs) his 
own, and of other 
famous photogra- 
phers. He has 
agreed, and would 
be happy to put up 
an exhibit of those 
photographs, if we 
had the venue for 
it," Edwards 

Edwards con- 
tinued, "We have 
here the Sepic oce- 
anic art collection that Dr. Slattum has 
taken care of for years. It is kept under lock 
and key. Very few people have seen it 
because very few people know ii's here and 
they can't get into it. This should be a very 
big exhibit; it's in the CLU Collection of 
art. We have a room that has in it a collec- 
tion of art from students and donations. 
That room is loaded v/ith art that could 
periodically be shown in the gallery." 

Edwards spoke with Dennis Johnson, vice 
president for enrollment and student life, 
about placing a gallery and the biggest 
problem that they are faced with is the 
allocation of space. "It's very tight," he 

One thing they discussed was using space 
in the cafeteria that was once utilized for 
continuing education. Johnson said that the 
space was 840 sq. feet. "It would be perfect 
for a nice, intimate gallery for the univer- 
sity," Edwards added. 

Is there anything that we students can do 
to facilitate the process of acquiring this 
space for our gallery? "Let the administra- 
tion know what you want. Don't be quiet: 
write to The Echo your opinion on the 
gallery, write to the administration, tell 
Dean Jonathan Boe and Dr. Pamela 
Jolicoeur. Let them know that you want a 
permanent art exhibition gallery, and don't 
be afraid to tell them what you want. The 
University is here for you students," the art 
professor said. 

Edwards added that "the important thing 
is that it is a necessity for the aesthetic 
development of al 1 the students on the cam- 
pus, not just the art students."

Bird's eye view of 
art in the library 


Staff Writer 

Students who have walked into the 
Pearson Library have been able to take 
advantage of the various art exhibitions 
on display by senior art major, Lori 

She organizes all display exhibitions 
that are set up in the library. 

During the last couple of weeks, exhi- 
bitions such as children with AIDS have 
been adisplayed. 

According to Wolnick, these displays 
were a result of what was created by 
children during an art therapy workshop. 

Along with these displays, the first set 
of mono- prints, transfers of images cre- 
ated on a pieces of Plexiglas, made by 
students in Annemarie Carlson's print 
class have been displayed. One set of the 
mono-prints displayed were the self por- 

During Nov. 13-20, a photo exhibi- 
tion on tobacco messages will be on 

Still in line for scheduling is the work 
of three new art professors and a student 

show. The student show will occur the 
last week of November, with students 
will having the opportunity to display 
any of their work that they have done 
during the semester. 

Wolnick will also be coordinating 
this show along with the help of the 
Expressionist Club on campus. She 
hopes that along with its help, the show 
will help bring in more art work. 

Before Christmas, Wolnick plans to 
haveLarkin Higgins display a small 
series of Christmas-oriented collages. 

Wolnick's creativity in setting up 
and organizing the exhibition displays 
in the library have been a very good 
way for students to see what the art 
department is doing. 

The displays in the library are not 
followed by a theme, Wolnick said. It 
is work that has been brought to her. 
"Normally what is put on display is 
followed by a good idea, suggestion, or 
just simply whatever works out for the 
week," she added. 

Wolnick said that she is always open 
to suggestions if anyone is interested in 
seeing any of their ideas on display. 

Editor in Chief 

"Of all the children's theatre productions, 
this is the most entertaining," Barbara 
Wegher-Thompson says of hermostrecent 
children's theatre endeavor at CLU. 

Wegher-Thompson is the director of 
"Androcles and the Lion" by Aurand Harris, 
the children's theatre production slated to 
be performed at the Civic Arts Plaza Forum 
Theatre this weekend. 

The story is based on one of Aesop's 
fables. The play tells the humorous tale of 
an ill-treated slave, Androcles played by 
junior Bret-Jordan Kreiensieck, who runs 

Androcles bumps into a fierce lion, played 
by sophomore Tony Gardner, who has a 
thorn stuck in his paw. He pulls the thorn 
out of the lion's paw. 

Eventually, Androcles is caught for 
running away. For his punishment, he must 
fight a lion. 

This lion turns out to be the very lion that 
he helped. 

Androcles is not eaten by lion because he 
helped the lion in his time of need. 

Like every Aesop's fable, "Androcles 
and the Lion" has a moral: "No kindness 
goes unrewarded." 

The show is done in the style of Comedia 
del Arte, a fast and physical comedy that 
was common during the Italian renaissance. 

Wegher-Thompson says "it is the exact 
thing cartons are done from today." 

The director says she feels this genre is an 
improvisational type of theatre that allows 
actors to add a lot of their own humor to 
their characters. 

Of the production itself she says, "It is 
very entertaining for both children and 

Junior Ann Catalano, stage manager of 
the production, feels much the same. "I 
think people will love the high energy and 

very vivid characters," she says. 

The cast of seven shares much of the 
same enthusiasm carried by their director 
and stage manager. 

"We've had so much fun. This has been 
the coolest cast," junior Michelle Elbert 
says of her experience in the children's 
theatre production as the Prologue, Emperor 
and Wall. 

"Androcles and the Lion" marks 
sophomore Matt Powell's first play. He 
takes on the part of Lelio. "It's my first play 
so it has been an interesting experience," he 

The hand-made costumes are also cause 
of much of the excitement that drives this 
group to a professional quality performance 
that is sure to delight all. 

"I think the neatest thing about this play 
is the costumes are just incredible," Catalano 
says of the work done by costume designer 
Bethany Lewis, senior and the many 
members of the CLU drama department 
that helped her out 

Junior Corey Evans who plays the part of 
the Captain has a different view of his 

"My experience has been great, and if it 
wasn't for these tights I would say it would 
be the greatest experience of my life," he 
says jokingly, much to the agreement of 
Powell who also must wear a pair of tights 
as part of his costume. 

Other actors in the production include 
junior Holly Forssell as Pantalone and senior 
Maari Gould as Isabella. 

Overall, Wegher-Thompson sums 
"Androcles and the Lion" up best when she 
says, "'It is a very wonderful representation 
of what Cal Lu can do." 

The production is scheduled to take place 
on Saturday and Sunday at 1 and 3 p.m. at 
the Civic Arts Plaza Forum Theatre. 

The cost for tickets is $7; however there 
will be a free preview performance for 
students on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. 


Global Peace and Justice 
active on CLU campus 


Staff Writer 

Global Peace and Justice is an organiza- 
tion on campus that presents programs for 
the community and campus that will reflect 
different issues that affect the United Stales. 

This organization is very active in deal- 
ing with problems facing campus life and 
trying to find solu- 
tions to the problems. 

Recently, Global 
Peace and Justice 
planned an Urban 
Plunge, which is a 
means of seeing dif- 
ferent injustices that 
occur in the United 
States and especially 
in California. 

The members be-

campus ministry de- 
partment for 10 
years as a volunteer, ~ ^~ ^~"^^^~ 
and the main thrust of my time has been 
spent working and promoting Global Peace 
and Justice," she said. 

The organization's agenda promotes 
communication between different ethnic 
groups, and presents debates where stu- 
dents can discuss problems and solutions. 

Fetzner said she feels that discussing 
such issues as affirmative action, Proposi- 
tion 187, and NAFTA, will eventually cre-

day at 5 p.m., and 
are held in the 
Samuelson Chapel. 
Programs Board di- 
rector, attended the 
club's meetings for 
the past two weeks. 
She decided 
that the Programs 
Board would like to 
—"■~~"^""~— — ~ sponsor a new type 
of student meeting called Students Taking 
on Prejudice (STOP). 

These meetings will start Nov. 29 at 7 
p.m. in the Nelson Room. 

Racism continues to be a problem in our 
society. Realizing this, the organization 
has decided to deal with this issue next year. 
"We want to concentrate on improving 
race relations next year. We want to zero in 
on this issue for our campus," Fetzner said.

Urban Plunge an eye-opening experience 

Students learn about injustice in garment industry 


Staff Writer 

The clothes you buy and wear may have 
been made by enslaved immigrant workers, 
said Reva Fetzner, staff director of Global 
Peace and Justice. 

Her assessment of immigrant garment 
workers comes from the Nov. 7 "Urban 
Plunge" outing, where students visited 
lawyer Julie Su in Los Angeles. 

Su is a lawyer with the Asian Pacific 
Legal Services, and represents the 72 Thai 
garment workers who were discovered in 
August working in deplorable conditions at 
a forced-labor compound, Fetzer said. 

"The Thai workers spent four years in 
forced labor where they worked below the 
minimum wage and had no medical care. It 
was a terrible affair," she said. 

"Eleven contractors are now in jail, and 
the Thai workers can ' t go home (to Thai land) 
until after the trial," she added. 

Su and other lawyers for the Thai 
immigrants are now seeking millions of 
dollars in a suit against several clothing 
manufacturers, including some "very well- 
known labels," who conducted business 
with the El Monte contractors. 

Fetzer said she feels the Urban Plunge 
outing was an eye-opening experience for 
her and for others who visited Su. 

"I think everyone who went is much 
more aware of what's going on in the 
garment industry, and you have a different 
perspective of what you're buying," she 

Susan Peters, senior, said the Urban 
Plunge outing made her more aware of the 
injustices done to immigrant workers. 

"I learned that what happened to the 
garment workers happens to a lot of other 
workers," she said. 

According to Fetzer, Urban Plunge is an 
event sponsored by Global Peace and 
Justice, a Campus Ministry committee, and 
is held once in the fall and spring semesters.

El Rancho Simi celebrates 200 years of 
history; offers tours of historical sites 


Staff Writer 

A luxurious health resort on the banks of 
a flowing river doesn't seem to fit into the 
history of Simi Valley, but Stratheam His- 
torical Park and Museum proves that's how 
it all started. 

Enticed by an 1 887 advertising campaign 
depicting a large river in Simi Valley, a 
groupof doctors in Chicago started out their 
resort town by shipping 12 partially built 
houses by rail to Saticoy, then hauling them 
in wagons to the new town. 

A lour of Stratheam Park with 30 fourth 
graders from Abraham Lincoln Elementary 
School offered a refreshing perspective and 
a chance to see the history of Simi Valley 
through the eager eyes of youngsters. 

Amid "shushing" and "oohs and aahs," 
Mrs. Field's fourth graders filed into the 
visitors center to be introduced to their 
guides and to watch a video. 

One of three docents ready to take the 
challenge of showing the young people the 
history of Simi Valley was Jim Gobble, 
who captivated the kids by explaining about 
his last hame. 

"Gobble means fork in German, you fork 
your food, that's where 'gobble your food' 
comes from," he said, to the delight of 
everyone listenting. 

The students were spellbound as the do- 
cent turned on the TV, showing an interest- 
ing video of Simi Valley beginning with the 
stone-age Chumash. 

The video succeeded in giving the stu- 
dents a god idea of what early California 
living was all about. 

Milking, hauling water, shucking com, 
churning butter, chopping wood and many 
other demonstrations of chores back then 
had the class groaning and giggling and 
waiting to start the visit 

Divided into three groups of ten, the lour 
began outside the visitors center with a 
lecture on the reasons why Simi is the way 
it is today. 

In the early 1800s, the largest Spanish 
land grant in California (El Rancho Simi) 
changed from a cattle ranch with a primary 
industry of cattle hides, to farming in the 

"Why did farming stop in the 1950s?" 
Gobble asked his group of ten. The number 
one guess, and a good one, was water short- 
ages. However, Gobble said there was an- 
other reason. 

"Simi was always short on water, but in 
the 1950s, land was bought up for houses," 
he said, adding, "They went from raising 
crops to raising kids," adding with a grin. 

In 1893, the Stratheam "Home Ranch" 
was attached to the original 200-year-old 
Spanish "Simi" adobe. They are both in 
their original locations on the site of the 
Shimiji Chumash Village, where Simi got 
its name. 

Not in its original location, the Colony 
House was moved to Stratheam Park by the 
Simi Valley Historical Society in 1970. 

The Colony House is one of two remain- 
ing examples of the California Mutual Ben- 
efit Colony's original dream to subdivide a 
town they had name "Simiopolis." 

"It cost about $600 to buy the lot. That's 
pretty cheap, but remember, this house 

Colony House - 1888 

wasn't really very much," Gobble said. 

"It didn't have electricity, it didn't have 
any plumbing, no bathroom, no sinks," he 
said, ad di ng an explanation about outhouses 
over a chorus of giggles. 

Hundred- year-old details like carved 
wooden molding and ornate metal lights 
were overlooked by the children as they 
examined the small stove thatkept the house 
warm in the winter. 

"What can you bum in it? Can you bum 
things on top of it? Does it bum acorns?" 
they asked. 

The next question, which turned out to be 
a popular theme for the rest of the day was, 
"Where does that door go?" Surrounded by 
interesting artifacts and examples of early 
California living, a certain fascination with 
doors persisted. 

Back doors, bam doors, bathroom doors 
and closet doors were child magnets auto- 
matically surrounded and investigated by 
different individuals but always with the 
full attention of the others in the group. 

Across the dirt street and down from the 
corrugated metal garages built to accom- 
modate the newly invented car, resides 
Simi 's first library building. Though library 
facilities have been available to the citizens 
of Simi since 1916, the county built a true

Much of the history of Simi Valley lies 
under the super-development of the Wood 
Ranch housing tract, but an important part 
of that ranch was donated to Stratheam 

The large bam where the workings of the 
ranch was conducted was relocated to be 
preserved and shared. 

Packed with the tools and implements 
needed to run a ranch, weigh scales, wheel- 
barrows, and a shoe repair shop are lined up 
next to a chuck-wagon and a horse-drawn 
mail cart. 

The Ventura County switchboard sits in 
obsolete glory next to the old post office, 
comprised of wooden slots to sort the mail. 

A display of the equipment needed to 
process and protect the thriving fruit or- 
chards that once covered the valley cap- 
lured the attention of the entire group. 

Apricot dehydrators and smudge pots 
were gazed upon with interest, but eyes 
were wandering to an area beyond the dis- 
play platform, and finally the question was 
asked, "What's that door for?" Gobble pa- 
tiently explained it led to a storage area for 
the bam. 

The Wood Ranch bam is full of ranching 
and farming equipment but the outside col- 
lection is huge. 

Hundreds of samples of heavy and light 
machinery line the park, all tinted the deli- 
cate orange that only a combination of 
metal and age can give. 

The students left the park not knowing of 
the 40 to 50 docents that volunteer their 
time or the coordination that exists be- 
tween the park district and the historical 
society necessary to keep the park running. 
Nor should the kids have bigger worries on 
their minds like - where does that door go?

NCAA Quarterfinals 

Team to travel to Ohio to face 
John Carroll College Saturday 

Staff Writer 

The CLU women's volleyball team 
advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA 
Division III Championships after defeating 
UC San Diego in four games Saturday 

The win made the Regals the western 
regional champs.and secured them of having 
the best single season winning percentage 
in the school's history, regardless of what 
happens next week. 

The Regals (25-2) will travel to Cleveland, 
Ohio to face John Carroll (27-11) on 
Saturday at 2 p.m. 

The Regals were paced on Saturday by 
Tara Thomas, Darcy White, and Liz 
Martinez, who all set school records during 
the match. 

White and Thomas tied the school record 
with 32 digs apiece, while Martinez broke 
the assist record with 67. 

Karen Kasper had a game high 23 kills to 
assure the victory, 16-14, 18-16, 10-15, 15- 

The first game took 45 minutes to 
complete, as the Regals came back from a 
14-10 deficit, and the Regals didn't look 
back from there. 

The victory was the second in three tries 
against UCSD this season for the Regals. 

The loss for the Tritons ended their season 
at 15-15. 

After only five seasons competing as a 
member of NCAA Division III, the Regals 
have acheived their best performance in the 

Currently, the team is ranked number 
five in the nation. 

As for John Carroll, the team is in its third 
straight NCAA tournament, having made 
the quarterfinals last year. 

The game on Saturday will be the first 
ever meeting of the two teams. 

The Regals definitely expect a tough 
game, however, they remain confident. 

"I think we can make it to the Final Four, 
if not win the whole thing," said senior 
setter Thomas. 

"We're definitely peaking at the right 
time," she concluded. 

Kingsmen defeat AIS 

Basketball prepares for season; 
Menlo Tournament this weekend 

Sports Editor 

The Kingsmen basketball team got off to 
a good start Monday with an exhibition 
vie lory over the AusLralian Institute of Sport 

The team opens regular season play this 
weekend at the Bud Presley Classic at Menlo 
College, playing Albcrison College at 6 
p.m. Friday. 

"Albertson College is ranked in the top 
ten in the NAIA, so it should be a nice 
challenge for our guys.'said coach Rich 

Rider is definitely looking forward to die 
season, and he does have reason to be 

"We're gonna look to our seniors this 
year," said Rider referring especially to 
point guard Dave Ulloa, shooting guard 
Mark Heerema, and swingman Jon Rider. 

"We're gonna count on them to provide 
leadership," he said 

These three players posted led the 
K ingsmen against AIS , and should be factors 
all year. 

Ul loa, who was Second Team all-SCI AC 
in 1993-94 before missing eight games last 
year with a broken bone in his hand, posted 
1 1 points, 4 assists and 4 steals against AIS, 
despite turning the ball over seven times. 

Heerema, who averaged 10.6 points per 
game last year, also added 1 1 points Monday. 

Rider, a Second Team all-SCIAC 

selection last year, led all scorers with 1 7 

Freshman forward Mike McGill also 
played well in die opener, adding 1 1 points. 

Also, Andy Saint, a junior transfer from 
Oxnard City College added 6 rebounds. 

"Defensively, we did a pretty good job," 
said coach Rider, adding, "offense needs 

"It's early yet,' he noted though, "we had 
opening game jitters." 

Those jitters accounted for 25 turnovers 
by the Kingsmen, which kept AIS close 

However, the Kingsmen played much 
better in the second half, coming back from 
a 28-24 half time deficit, to pull away in the 
final minutes for the win. 

As far as the season goes, coach Rider has 
set up a lough schedule for the Kingsmen to 
prepare ihem for SCI AC play. 

"We may have the toughest schedule in 
the history of the school," he said, noting, 
however, "in the long run, the competition 
should pay off. 

Despite Rider's confidence at this point 
in the season, he knows it will be awhile 
before the team will perform to it's ability. 

"I like our guys a lot," he said, pointing 
out however, "it's so early, I don't know 
how our team will perform." 

"We'll have a much better read in 

Hopefully the team can pull together by 
then, as SCI AC play begins January 10 at

Kingsmen can't gain 
victory over La Verne 

Highest SCIAC finish for squad 


Sports Editor 

The Kingsmen football team wound up 
its season Saturday with a disappointing 
loss to La Veme 31-21. 

The team finished the season tied for 
second in the SCIAC with a record of 4-4- 
1 overall, 4-2 in SCIAC. 

"I think we have to look at the season as 
a success," said Kingsmen coach Joe 

"Our season goal was to win the 
conference championship, which we did 
not reach," Harper explained, adding "we 
did finish second, which is the highest 
finish we've had in the SCIAC." 

The defense again played spectacularly, 
holding La Verne, the number one scoring 
offense in Division 111,16 points below its 

Also, the defense seemingly had to 
operate in it's own territory mosi of the 
game with four Leopard drives starting in 
Kingsmen territory and no drive starting 
inside the La Veme 32. 

The team kept the game close through 
the first half, trailing only 10-7 at the half. 

However, La Veme opened the gap in 
the third, scoring after a Ryan Huisenga 
interception, and addinganother touchdown 
on a 60 yard drive. 

"We had the ability to make it close, and 
yet we probably didn't play our best game 
of the year," said Harper. 

However, he did add, "La Veme probably 
had something to do with that though." 

Kingsmen running back FredrikNanhcd 
was held to 98 yards on 36 carries, although 
he did score on a nice 8-yard run through 
the La Veme defense at the end of the first 

Quarterback Ryan Huisenga played well 

I lowed a chance to throw, coniplcung 

14 out of 25 lor 149 yards, despite the 

mistake that led to a La Veme scoring drive. 

Harper, despite the loss, had nothing but 
good things to say about his team. 

"This was one of the best group of guys, 
probably more fun than some of the other 
teams I had," he said, summing it up 
succinctly, "this was a great bunch of guys." 

Harper noted a few especially bright spots 
on the team, starting with Nanhed on offense. 

On defense. Harper pointed out a few 
strong points on a complete team. 

Defensive tackle Tyler Blackmore, 
linebacker Chris Peltonen, and defensive 
backs Chad Valousky, who played most of 
the La Verne game with a separated 
shoulder, and Manias Wikstrom, were 
mentioned as strong points on the defensive 

Further, punter Jeff Shea led the nation in 
punting going into the final game, ending 
with an average of 45 yards per punt. 

Next year, the team should be strong 

The whole offensive backfield should 
have some experience, including Huisenga, 
Nanhed, and fullback Billy Busch. 

Offensive linemen such as Will Plemons, 
Tim Johnson, and R ico Gross should provide 
a strong base for the team. 

Defensively, such players as Damon 
Barnett, Justin Monical and Tony Sullivan 
provide good returnees from an excellent 
team this season. 

Further, special teams should be strong, 
led by punter Shea and placekickers Bach 
Stabile and Tim Cronk. 

However, as Harper points out, the team 
will need to replace a lot of players. 

"We will probably have as many as 13 
new starters, which will be filled by backups 
from this year and also new recruits," he 

All thingsconsidercd, the strong showing 
this year should definitely help the team in 
the future.

Fick working way 
through minor leagues 

CLU graduate to play with 
Arkansas Travelers this season 


Contributing Writer 

Baseball is a game of peaks and valleys. One day a player can be on top and 
the next he is stumbling toward the bottom says Chris Fick, 1994 CLU graduate 
who has completed his second year as a pro. 

Last season he played for the Florida State League Class A St. Petersburg 
Cardinals, one of seven minor league teams in the St. Louis Cardinals organization. 

"It's like a roller coaster ride," Fick says, an analogy that he used to describe 
his baseball experience and his personal life. 

In 1988, his senior year at Newbury Park High School, he dislocated his right 
arm during a bench-clearing brawl at the end of the final game of the baseball 
season. Two months later he injured his knee while playing basketball. 

"When I got hurt, I wasn't going to play anymore" because he was "really 
down on myself," Fick says. 

He attended college in Arizona-but did not play baseball- and then spent the 
1990-92 seasons as an assistant coach at Westlake High School and taking 
classes at colleges in the Ventura County Community College system. 

Before transferring to CLU as a junior, he had surgery on his knee and rotator 
cuff surgery on his shoulder. 

"If it wasn't for this school (Cal Lutheran), I might not be playing baseball 
right now," he said. 

Fick started as a player-coach on the Kingsmen junior varsity team, but after 
hitting four home runs in the first five games, he was moved up to varsity. He 
led the team in home runs in the 1993 season and was co-leader in 1994. 

After graduating from CLU with a degree in communication arts, Fick was 
signed in July that year by the St. Louis Cardinals and assigned to the California 
League Class A San Bernardino Spirit for the last six weeks of the season. 

He went for 30 in his first three weeks, then broke his slump by hitting a 
grand slam off of one of the former students he coached at Westlake High. Fick 
finished the season with an overall average of .222, seven home runs and 29 runs 

After thatt he was promoted to the Florida State League Class A St. Petersburg's 
roster and immediately began to impress those whom he played for, especially 
manager Chris Maloney, who considers Fick's work ethic as one of the keys to 
his success. 

The manager, speaking on a Tampa-SL Petersburg TV station sports news 
segment that Fick has a copy of, said that Fick was on the field, working on his 
hitting an hour to 1 1/2 hours before practice started. 

"I'm amazed he can still play after the injuries he's had," Maloney said. 

Fick says, "I expect somebody to give 150 percent if I'm giving 1 50 percent." 
He gave it his all this season, most notably in June when he lead all of minor 
league baseball with a .469 batting average and was named the Cardinal 
organization's Player of the Month. 

He ended his season with an overall average of .293 with 13 home runs and 
52 RBI. 

"I had something to prove to myself this year," Fick said. "My hard work paid 

Not only did his dedication lead his team to a good season and gain him a 
position for next season on the Texas League Class A A Arkansas Travelers in 
Little Rock. It also landed him a job as an extra in the movie, "The Fan," starring 
Wesley Snipes and Robert DeNiro. The movie began production in San 
Francisco on Monday.
